A marriage dissolution proceeding starts by filing what are commonly known as divorce papers. Technically, these documents include either the petition or complaint for divorce and the summons. The petition is the document that outlines the basic facts supporting why you desire to end your marriage as well as information about what you want to obtain through the divorce process. You may reach a point during the proceedings when you need to amend the divorce papers to add, change or remove a provision.
