The petitioner in Placer County is the person who files a lawsuit, such as a divorce action in California. The petition contains important information about the case, and a copy must be served on your spouse using acceptable methods of service. There are advantages to being the petitioner in a divorce. For example, you get to decide when to file the suit and where. You can also protect your finances before letting your spouse or partner know that you wish to separate.
