You can start your family law case by either filing a legal separation or a divorce. Legal separation when complete does not end the marriage. When you complete your divorce action and get a final judgment, you terminate your marriage. There are financial documents that you must provide to the court for the court to determine if you are eligible for a fee waiver.
