How To Obtain a Divorce in the United States

When people get married, they do not typically anticipate their marriage will end in divorce. However, about 50% of marriages end in divorce. Although the specific rules surrounding divorce vary by state, in general there are certain procedures that must be followed in order to obtain a divorce.

First, one party must file a petition for divorce with the proper court, meaning a court having jurisdiction over the matter. Typically, courts having jurisdiction to hear the divorce will include the state in which the marriage took place, the state in which the filing spouse resides and the state in which the non-filing spouse resides. The divorce petition must also be personally served on the non-filing spouse.
