After you file for divorce, your future ex-spouse is served with the necessary legal documents. Also, a financial restraining order is automatically set in place.

This financial restraining order prevents you and your spouse from altering your financial status quo or transferring assets.

If a child is involved, a temporary protective order of restraint may be issued. This order prohibits you and your spouse from changing your child’s routine or residency.

Next, your attorney and your future ex-spouse’s attorney will begin the discovery process. This process discloses the financial situations of both parties involved.

Your attorney and your future ex-spouse’s attorney will try to reach a settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, your case may go to mediation or to a trial.
