I’m getting divorced in Forsyth County (without an attorney), and I have a couple questions.
I am going Friday to get a court date, and I’m wondering how he’s going to find out about the date. Do I have to mail him something? I heard from a friend that he has moved, but due to the fact that I have a restraining order against him, I have no way of getting the current address from him. Is it my responsibility that he gets the notice or not? And if he doesn’t, what happens?
Also, I’m just wondering what’s going to happen in court. He’s very…vindictive, among other things, and said before the restraining order that he will do anything in his power to stop the divorce from happening. He claims to have a communication between me and him using instant messenger that he wants to use against me so that I won’t be granted a divorce. My password was stolen a few months back, and I have no knowledge of what may be in this document that he claims to have.
When do I ask to resume my maiden name? Does that happen in court?
Anyway, the details are that it’s a simple divorce, we handled any property division already (there was nothing really to divide except debt), and there are no children involved. I’m not asking for alimony, and even if he asked for it, he would not get it for several reasons.
Thanks for any advice.
