The following types of new actions may be initiated:
- Petition for dissolution of marriage (contested/uncontested with or without children)
- Petition for Legal Separation
- Petition for Child Custody or Visitation
- Petition for Child Support
Special filing actions are available for dissolution and custody cases. When filing a motion or other document into an existing case, the Filer will see a checkbox that says “Domestic & Family”. By checking this box, special actions for these cases become available.
The box may be pre-checked already if the system has already identified the case as being domestic and family. If the box is pre-checked, the filer cannot override it in order to see domestic and family actions and must call the clerk to request the case type be changed.
