Deadline for hearing date


#1

No, as long as the complaint has been served you can get a court date at any time. If you wait too long the court may dismiss the action, but the court will give you a considerable amount of time (probably at least a year) before they would take this step.

I HAVE FILED ALL NECESSARY FORMS WITH ATTORNEY AND MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN SERVED WITH THE DIVORCE COMPLAINT. MY ATTORNEY ADVISED ME THAT I HAD TO WAIT 30 DAYS FOR MY HUSBAND TO RESPOND TO COMPLAINT AND I HAVE DONE THAT. I AM OUT OF TOWN ON BUSINESS CONSTANTLY AND HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO ACTUALLY GET A COURT DATE YET. HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO GET THAT DATE. DOES THE COMPLAINT EXPIRE? IF I DON’T GET A COURT DATE SOON WILL I HAVE TO HAVE A NEW COMPLAINT SERVED.
