Does it matter who files for divorce first?

One of the most repeated questions I get is whether or not it matters who files for divorce first. Oftentimes, people believe that the Court reviews who is the filing party and either believes they are a good person or bad person because they have filed for divorce.

Please understand that it simply does not matter if you are the Petitioner or Respondent in a divorce case. Parties to a divorce case should know and be told that what matters to the Court is the merits of your action.

Having a qualified, competent, and experienced divorce attorney will benefit you by allowing you to ask questions regarding the complete divorce process. Having an attorney will allow you to create a strategy to pursue in your divorce case that will hopefully lead to the best result possible for you.
