If he filed for divorce, he then has to have you “served” with the summons and complaint if he wants the divorce to be granted. He can do that by mail, certified, return receipt requested, or he can request that a deputy or other process server bring it to you. He has to have you served before he can obtain a divorce. He can’t put a filing on “hold”. He either filed it or he didn’t. You don’t have to pay for it.
