When filing a divorce what steps need to be taken so I dont have to wait the required 6 months for judgement to be granted? I have two minor children. My son was six months old at the time of marriage and my ex is the only father he has known. He does not want to have any involvement with my son now because he is special needs. I have a daughter born during the marriage and he does want parenting time with her. My ex has no drivers license due to 3 DUI's prior to our relationship. He does not have a job and he lives in a one bedrrom apartment with his 18 year old male ephew who is currently on probabtion for marijuana. I want sole physical and legal custody of both children. He is unwilling to help with gas when I drop the kids of f to him or pick them up from him. ????????
