Yes, that is correct. It is rarely called "suing" for divorce anymore; since every state has gone to no-fault divorce ("the marriage is irretrievably broken," or language to that effect), there is no chance of a court denying a divorce, so the result of divorce is a foregone conclusion and all the court determines are the terms according to law. The term "sue" is usually used in terms of petitioning for a redress of grievances, whereas in a divorce no grievance need be asserted in order to obtain requested relief. Thus, one would typically say "petition" rather than "sue," but it works the same irrespective of the terminology.
