Generally, it does not matter who files first in a no-fault divorce. However, there may be some tactical angle to filing or not filing first based on the specific facts of your case. If you both agree and can get along in determining who gets what, including child custody and visitation, then you could seek mediation. But if you don't get along, or one spouse has an upper hand, then it would be wise to retain an attorney.
