Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
How do I take the separation agreement to the court? Can I do it, or does a lawyer have to? Which court? Do you know if there are forms to fill out besides or do I just 'drop it off'? I know this sounds dumb, but I have no clue. I assume we will need a hearing of some sort for the court to grant a legal separation so I need to know how to go about it. I really don't have money for a lawyer. Everybody I called said it would cost the same as a divorce, thus, I'm trying to do it myself.
Also, does the 19 year old have to be mentioned anywhere or does the legal paperwork pretty much cover the 'on paper' financial aspect?
