The required 40 days will have concluded on Feb. 3, (process by Publication) and there was no response.
I have the publishers affidavit that I will file along with my own.
My question is:
- since there was no response:
will there be a hearing set and\or do I file the affidavits and the form “Judgement for Absolute Divorce Before the Clerk” or “Judgment” or both.
- If there is a hearing date:
Do I still need to send a copy of the hearing date to last known address even though the ad ran in the paper with no response.
When I originally filed I was not given a court date but was told they would send info in the mail once the sheriff served. Sheriff was unable to serve but I never received anything in the mail. I wonder if after filing an alias & pluries and publishing…do I now need to file a form that I am unaware of to request a court date or if “absolute divorce” is approved by default once I file the affidavit by publisher. If this is the case I need to know which forms I proceed with. I have had much opposition by the clerk when asking about proceedure information and am desperate to know exactly what next as I am so close to finishing this. Thanks for your attention
