Divorce Complaint Certified Mail


#1

The judge may question why your signature is on the card, but it shouldn’t hold up your divorce. The only thing that he might contest is the date of separation or that he was served. However, with his signature on the card, service is not an issue. Otherwise, there really is not anything he can contest. Your divorce should go through.

Good luck,

My divorce complaint was sent certified mail to my husband on 25-Feb-2004 which was exactly one year and one day since we have been separated. My husband has recently lost his license and was unable to go to the post office to sign for the complaint. I went with him to the post office and we both signed the certified letter card. Both of our signatures are on the card. Will this be sufficient evidence that he has the papers in his hands for the 30 days to begin for him to contest the divorce? Will this go through for the divorce date to be two weeks after the 31 days have been met if he does not contest the divorce?
