Divorce from bed and board

Once you have been served, the next step would be for you to file an Answer to that Complaint. If the allegations are not true you should deny them, you could also file a motion to dismiss.

The attorney would then have to set this matter for hearing, at the hearing you would both be able to present evidence detailing your side of the story and the Judge would make a decision based on the evidence presented.

Since my wife is trying to get a divorce from bed and board cn you explain the civil procedural steps her attorney will be trying to take or what is the court proceedings? Last year I was never served and I recieved letters at my home about calender court dates and custody hearing classes which I was not aware of!

Her attorney is noted for being very shrued. Since she is trying to bring up an old complaint that was in limbo a year ago of my wife having a veneral disease and now recently a new veneral disease noted from both parties in which my wife is constantly trying to get me to say that I was unfaithful and at fault. How could she (that is the attorney) convince the courts that my wife should be granted a divorce from bed and board if we have been doing fine up until this recent incident?
