Filing the Case
Filing the complaint for divorce is the first step in the case. The cost of filing depends on the county in which the defendant resides, or where the plaintiff resides, if the defendant resides out of state, cannot be located or consents to jurisdiction. The filing fee can range from $204 to $220 and is paid to the clerk of court at the time of filing. All necessary paperwork must be submitted to the clerk at the time of filing and failure to properly submit required documents may result in the delay or ultimate dismissal of the case.
