My spouse and I got into a big argument in May 2015, I finally told her I wanted a divorce. A few days later she files a complaint demanding custody of our kids, divorce from bed and board, etc… we then have a temporary custody hearing for the kids and we now live apart. Nothing since. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Since May 2015. She refuses to move the case forward, refuses to settle. It’s been almost two years of this “marriage” and we don’t even live in NC any more but the case is still open there.
What can I do to move this forward and wrap it up??? I’m told I can’t file anything because I’m the responding party, I just have to keep waiting. When will the court drop this for lack of activity??? It’s so frustrating to be “married” like this, and the temporary custody order was full physical custody to her because I’m military and was leaving the country for six months. With this backdoor “temporary” full custody, mandatory spousal support from me due to military regulations, free military healthcare for her, etc… She’s in no rush to divorce. It’s ridiculous.
