Default Suing the wife and husband each separately in small claims

Can I sue the wife and husband each separately in small claims for a related event or must they be sued together?

The husband damaged my car and then the wife went out and tried to hide it and caused new damage.

They are divorcing but r not yet divorced. It will be hard to serve process on the wife for various reasons but not the husband.

I wish to inform you that wife and husband may be sued separately if their claim are different. If their liability if interrelated then same lawsuit will govern your action. As wife was made liable in separate damage incident thus you may file separate lawsuit if incident of wife may be separated from first incident where husband caused damage. If both incident cannot be separated then same lawsuit will govern the position.

If the damage was caused as a result of a particular reason in same situation you have to sue them together in small claims court, otherwise you will fail to establish the merits of the case.
