If you or someone you know is contemplating divorce it is important to know the legal jargon associated. Divorces can be stressful, expensive and complex. If you need further clarification regarding an aspect of divorce it is helpful to speak with a legal professional regarding your matter.
The first person who files for divorce will be known as the petitioner. The opposing party is known as the respondent. It is important to read the fine print in order to ensure that you are not missing key deadlines.
