Can I file for my final divorce decree (without a lawyer)? In a couple of weeks, we will have been living apart for a year. I was told you can still get your divorce even though everything is not yet settled (ED). I cannot afford any more attorney fees and would like to do this on my own. I have a friend who just got a divorce, and it looks like it only involves filing a petition. Can you please tell me if this is possible (filing for final divorce); and if so, what are the steps to do so?
Also once the divorce is final, can any claims be brought up for Alimony? I am currently paying PSS (supposed to pay for next 6 months) but haven’t discussed alimony. Is it safe to say I won’t have to pay alimony after the divorce decree is issued?
Thanks so much for your invaluable advice.
