If you are a dependent spouse which means primarily that your soon to be ex made more money than you, you also need to file a claim asking for alimony as well as property distribution prior to the 366 days expiring. You need to include claims for alimony, property distribution, child support, and child custody prior to the time expiring if applicable. If there are no issues, then it is easy to get a divorce after a year and a day has expired. You did not say how long you had been married, etc. etc. Of course, all of these issues can be worked out prior to the divorce and then the process of divorce is fairly easy. Whatever you and your ex decide can be approved by a judge beforehand and will become an order of the court. Just make sure you have covered your bases before the time runs out! I don’t know your situation, but make sure you cover your you know what.
