I just served a pretty basic complaint for absolute divorce on the grounds that we have been separated for more than one year. The summons was served by the Sheriff and was accepted by his sister (who is over 18). He frequently works out of town, even out of the country, but always keeps in close contact with his sister. His sister also manages his affairs for him while he’s gone. (Not sure if there’s a POA in place or not though.)
I’m anxious to get this over and worried that he’s going to try to postpone this even longer. (It’s 2 yrs since we’ve separated and he consistently refuses to cooperate.)
What are his options? Can he postpone this longer if he is actually out of the country? I know he has 30 days to respond. I’m hoping this will all be over at that point but… I want to be prepared.
