Second, a party must be a resident of the county in which the suit is filed for the preceding 90-day period.
However, a spouse that does not live in the state may file a case against a spouse that does live in the state, as long as that spouse meets both of the requirements stated above.
At the onset of a case, fees will be quite expensive with getting the initial pleadings (petitions and answers) filed and working on getting temporary orders (dealing with possession and access to children, property issues and financials) issued.
Typically there is a lull in the case while the parties are conducting and reviewing discovery, evaluating the parties (fitness as a parent), and negotiating for a final settlement.
For example, when a spouse suspects adultery that spouse must be able to prove the adultery occurred.
During this lull, we recommend that parties begin to build a “war chest” by saving money, borrowing from family, or gathering other resources so that once we are ready to go to final trial or to draft the final decree of divorce, the parties will be financially able to proceed.
Whether a party really needs an attorney depends on the facts of the case.
Divorce lawyers can also see issues that may not occur to couples proceeding pro se, such as tax treatment of financial issues surrounding the divorce, issues with exercising possession and access of your children, and even discovery of hidden assets.

Cruelty means that one spouse treated the other in such a way that the marriage and living together was insupportable.Furthermore, the court may not order a spouse to pay more than ,500, or 20%, of the spouse’s gross monthly income, whichever is less. When you file your petition or counter petition you can request a name change that will be final upon the entry of the final decree of divorce.
