Greetings. When you file a complaint for divorce, the court does not respond to you. After you file, you must serve the divorce on the other person by Sheriff, certified mail, registered mail, or designated delivery service (such as FedEX). After the date of service, you must wait at least thirty days for them to answer. If they do not answer, then you must set the divorce for hearing. Best of luck.
