申请离婚是一项复杂的工程。每个州对离婚的立法规定都是不一样的。很多美国的州都可以单方面提出离婚,不需要证明任何的婚内不当行为。离婚申请中最常见的原因是“不可调和的矛盾”这样的无过错离婚。

不同的州有不同的法定居住期限。大多数州对于那些想在本州申请离婚的夫妇都有一个最低居住年限的要求例如,你需要是堪萨斯州居民至少60天,然后才能在堪萨斯州提出离婚申请。在密苏里州,这个规定是90天。另外来说,不同的州有不同的离婚等待期限。 也就是说,离婚双方必须等待满这个期限,法庭才会批准离婚。

申请离婚的一方被称为“申请人”,另一方被称为“被申请人”。你需要填写一份传票,其主要描述了所在地关于离婚程序的重要信息。在你提交你的离婚申请后,被申请人必须收到适当的通知。实现这一点可以有很多方法,包括雇用服务送达员信使。送达员需填写送达回证。被申请人也可以签署通知豁免或自愿申明。

如果你和你的配偶不能同意所有离婚中涉及的问题,你必须去法庭,由法官决定这些事情。你很可能需要支付自己的律师费和费用。正常来说,一个律师不能代表离婚的双方。你的法律费用将取决于您的案件的复杂性和具体事实。在离婚诉讼程序中,你可以代表自己,如果你不想请律师,你可以向法院的家庭法调解人或自助中心寻求帮助。但是你需要考虑到自我代表存在的缺点。法院会会以律师的标注来裁定你的案子,认为你知道所有有关的法律和法规。

你和你的配偶必须都将自己财务信息整理成文件并提交给法院。离婚时,法院可以批准临时维护费用,赡养费,和小孩抚养费。法院的最终命令会处理对未成年子女的监护和支持。

It is not necessary to prove fault to file for divorce. Different states have different residency rules. For example, you need to be a Kansas resident for at least 60 days before you can file for divorce in Kansas. In Missouri, it is 90 days. There are also rules as to how long the divorce must be pending before the court can grant it.

After the divorce petition is filed, the other spouse must receive proper notification. There are many ways to accomplish this, including hiring a process server. The receiving spouse can sign a Waiver or an Entry of Appearance.

If you and your spouse do not agree on all the issues, you have to go to the court and have the judge decide on the matters. You will most likely have to pay for your own attorney’s fees and expenses. An attorney cannot represent both parties to the divorce. The legal cost will depend on the complexity and particular facts of your case. You are not required to hire an attorney, but there are disadvantages to self-representation in a divorce proceeding. You are held to the standard as an attorney in court and you are expected to know the statutes and case laws.

Court can grant temporary maintenance when the divorce is pending. The final court order will address custody and support of minor children.
