Yes. The court will delay the final hearing until after the child is born, but you can go ahead and file the petition and get the ball rolling.

I agree with Mark. You can file but it cannot be finalized until the baby is born. Why? The husband is "the presumed father" and in the divorce it must include legal wording to make the right man the "father" of the baby.

Happy pregnancy!
