Divorce Process When Mediated

 1. PREPARATION:  

The three of us (you, your spouse and I) will discuss questions about your marriage, and determineoutstanding issues to be resolved.

Once all of the issues have been agreed upon, we will draft a Separation Agreement and  the Summons and Complaint.

2. DRAFT SUMMONS:  
To get divorced, one must sue the other spouse for divorce in the court located in the jurisdiction where either of you live.
Generally, one party sues as the plaintiff and the other party is designated the defendant, although the defendant could also counter sue the plaintiff for divorce as well.

3. ISSUING OF SUMMONS:  
A file is opened in court, and a docket number is received.at this point the parties must determine whether the action will be opposed or unopposed.

4. SERVICE OF SUMMONS:
The Summons is served on the defendant personally by a process server.

5. IN THE EVENT THE PARTIES CHOOSE TO LITIGATE INSTEAD OF MEDIATE:
 5.1 The defendant files pleading to defend and/or counter.
 5.2 Discovery Process – exchange of evidence supporting any claims.
 5.3 The Trial.
