i am filing paperwork for getting divorced and my husband thinks if he refuses to accept the papers that I can't proceed. Is this true? Also he threatened to take my son away from me if I go thru with it. At what point is it legal to get a restraining order to stop him from slandering me in front of my kids? Can I file criminal charges against him? His other sons mom was held hostage by him for trying to leave. He never actually hits me though just tries to antagonize me to the point of acting out towards him where he will call the cops If I ever do anything. Is this harrasment?
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
A no-fault divorce is one in which all that is needed to end the marriage is a claim, by either spouse, that the marriage has broken down.
