Does it matter who brings the divorce?

Comments Disabled

Based on the current law, there is very little advantage or disadvantage to the spouse who brings the complaint for divorce or is the defendant in the complaint for divorce.  Some attorneys like to be in a position to bring the lawsuit because to a certain extent they may control the pace of the case.  If the case goes to a trial, the plaintiff tells his or her story first to the judge.  Some lawyers argue that “first impressions are lasting impressions.”
