Before you embark on the filing of your case it is expedient that you make yourself acquainted with the divorce and separation basics. This will help you know whether or not you should settle for a divorce, that is if it is needed or fall within the line of annulment or legal separation.  

There are steps required to help begin the case easily but first, you have to be certain that you are ready to begin a case for either legal separation or divorce. You also have to be sure you are not eligible for summary dissolution. Filling your legal separation or divorce papers is just the beginning but it sure isn’t the end of the process. There are still a lot more others you still need to file alongside this. This mostly happens if you have one or more kids with your spouse/partner.
