You should go in person to the Court where you filed to check on the status. Depending on what you mean by "filed" that could be many different things. If you simply filed a complaint, then you would need to get the summons and have your spouse served (a new summons would be needed since more than 90 days have passed since you filed). If you mailed it in with the filing fee, then you need to verify it was received. Regardless, you should go to the Court where you filed to check on the status.
