When you decide to get married, not only do you sign a contractual agreement with your spouse, but also involve your state government. For this reason, you need to officially notify your state of your intention to end your marriage. Once the court approves your petition, they will officially dissolve your marriage by ordering a divorce decree.

Because the divorce process contains a series of important steps that must be carefully followed, it’s important to learn as much as you can about this legal procedure. Hiring an experienced family lawyer can help you successfully navigate any mediation or settlement hearings. In the meantime, you can get a brief overview of the divorce procedure by watching this helpful video.
