Q) What happens between the time I file my complaint for divorce and such time as my divorce is finalized?
A) After all papers are filed, there is usually a delay of at least several months before a judge can hear the case. During this time, the attorneys for both sides exchange information and financial documents in your case, and try to assist the parties in settling financial questions and other areas of disagreement. The husband and wife may sign a written statement agreeing to a particular division of marital property, child custody, support, alimony and other financial matters.
