Divorce in court


#1

You make sure you are in court on the date mentioned…if you do not appear, you are at risk of him getting whatever he is seeking, without your input. DO NOT MISS THAT COURT DATE! If you do not have an attorney at that time, it can be continued until you retain one. You need to seek legal advise, quickly…DO NOT SLACK ON THIS.


#2

you do not have to be there. My ex chose not to show up. I was divorced in a matter of minutes. Kinda anticlimatic… but I advise you to at least show up and read the paperwork. By not showing up you agree to your stbx’s terms. You can’t go back and have a do-over if a few years down the line you realize you got stuck with a bill when it shows up on your credit report.

lorie565…again…make sure you go to court on the scheduled date. You don’t want any surprises…be there so the judge can here YOUR side of the story…I’m here to tell you…DON’T MISS IT.

If the only issue being dealt with is the divorce and you do not disagree with any of the allegations in your spouses complaint for divorce, you do not need to go to court. However, you need to ensure that they are not trying to deal with any other issue, and that they are not attempting to incorporate your Separation Agreement unless you have agreed to do so. It might be worth it to have an attorney review the complaint so that you may alleviate your concerns.
