We begin our series with “Filing.” Filing a Verified Petition for Dissolution is the first step in the legal process of getting a divorce. The filing fee – the cost paid to the county to open a divorce case – is presently $137.00. The Petition includes the name of the parties, when they were married, if there were children born of the marriage, and other basic information. In the Petition, the reason for the dissolution is often cited as the marriage has been “irretrievably broken and should be dissolved.” The Petition typically does not contain a listing of complaints or specific allegations concerning the non-filing spouse. The filing party must have resided in Indiana for six months and the county where the Petition is to be filed for three months prior to the filing of the dissolution proceeding. Upon filing, the case is assigned a “cause number” and all future proceedings will take place in the same court, with limited exceptions.
After the Petition has been filed, the next step is to “serve” the non-filing spouse, which means providing formal notification that the Petition has been filed. This can be completed via Sheriff, certified mail, or a voluntary acknowledgment by the non-filing spouse. Once service has been completed, it is customary to establish the “ground rules” which will govern certain aspects of the parties’ conduct during the pendency of the divorce, such as custody of children, parenting time, possession of the marital residence, payment of marital expenses. These issues are referred to as “provisional Issues” and will be the subject of our next column.
