How to Obtain a Divorce After a Decree of Legal Separation Has Been Issued
If the court has already issued a final Decree of Legal Separation and one of the parties wishes to obtain a divorce later, a new initial Petition for Dissolution of Marriage would need to be filed using the same case number as the legal separation case. You would need to notify the Court in that petition that a Decree of Legal Separation was previously issued and that you now wish to dissolve the marriage.
