- Joint Application for Divorce
When the spouses apply for a divorce together, as they agree in writing for a divorce and the terms of any corollary relief. Spouses who do this are called joint applicants, or co-applicants. A joint application is only for uncontested divorces. Joint Applications for Divorce can only be filed based on one year’s separation, and documents cannot be filed until the one year separation period has elapsed.
