Divorce & Annulment

questions & answers

Question: Can I have my divorce finalized before I give birth if I'm pregnant?

Answer: You can, but you should inform the court of the pregnancy so that child custody, visitation (now referred to in the courts as legal decision-making and parenting time), and child support decisions can be made as part of the process.  Otherwise, you may end up right back in court dealing with these issues after the baby is born.
