A Petition for Dissolution may be filed while the wife is pregnant, however, the marriage cannot be dissolved (the divorce finalized) until the child is born. The process of dissolution can proceed and the issues worked out, but wife will have to give birth before the final dissolution is granted. If the husband is not the biological father of the unborn child, then the issue of paternity will have to be addressed in the dissolution as well.
