Confused about court date


#1

My spouse was served by Sheriff the and court where I filed was notified of service. Do I need to wait 30 days after service to actually schedule the court date? Or does the court date itself just have to be 30 days after service? The court issued me a date within 2 weeks of service and I just want to make sure I can move forward.

It depends on what type of hearing you are trying to schedule. For instance, if you have served your spouse with a complaint, then typically she will have thirty days to answer the complaint. If this is regarding filing for Absolute Divorce, you should consider using our DIY Divorce eBook.
