This may not be true in every case, but for some, the divorce court proceedings are a serious last step, so the court date is treated with reverence. In Wyoming, preparation and presentation can possibly help a person from taking the wrong path in the courtroom.

Your family is unique, and so is your divorce

Wyoming residents who are at the end of their marriages often lean on family and friends for support during this challenging and emotional time. More than likely, they know at least one other person who has been through a divorce and, with good intentions, will attempt to tell the friend or loved one starting the process how it will go.
