I have an attorney that is representing me in my divorce for assets, alimony, etc. I recently received a summons in the mail for absolute divorce. It wasn’t sent to my attorney, but to me. My attorney says it is a different law suit that is just for the divorce. However, in the wording of the paperwork it says, “pending alimony and division of assets”. My attorney says don’t worry about going to the summons it is just for the divorce. He could go, but just a waste of my money. We are not contesting the divorce.
Should I go or not? I think what he is saying is right, but don’t understand why her attorney is sending me the summons and not my attorney. I don’t want to make a costly mistake by not going, but he told me not to go. What do you recommend me doing?
