I've filled out the papers, and would like to have her sign the joinder. I don't believe there will be an issue with this, but I need to know what the correct procedure is. Do I send it to her and have her sign (hopefully) or do I file with the court and have her served with them in hopes that she will sign (seems more adversarial), or do I send them to her, AND file with the court?

Thanks for any insight

You need to check to see what the process is in your state. There may be self-help advice available at your county courthouse.

You'll probably need the help of a lawyer to get everything correct but if you're nonadversarial you may be able to have one lawyer work with both of you as a mediator and advisor rather than getting separate attorneys

Divorce is a lawsuit, so you'll almost certainly have to file it with the court and have her served by a third party. There are companies that do this, usually for a nominal fee, you can probably Google them up.

If it's nonadversarial you should be able to explain to your wife that that's just the way it has to be done.
