I’ve looked everywhere, and can’t find any reasons why an attorney should wait so long before setting a divorce hearing.
The complaint, answer, and reply has been filed, There are prayers for E.D. and alimony, (my wife filed) and the last, the reply from her lawyer was filed with the court July 10th. My attorney can’t figure it out because my wife’s attorney won’t return her calls. A lot of matters haven’t been settled, but my lawyer said as long as those matters are pending, and it’s in writing, I can still get the divorce. Can a complaint sit in the clerk of courts office with nothing done and still be vaild ? Is there a time limit on this ? I’ve been dealing with this for 2 years now.
Thanks
