Wife left me one year ago. I received divorce papers a few days ago. She is going through some divorce clinic and I have 30 days to answer. Can I do this without an attorney?
We have a house in both our names and my car is in both our names. We have emailed back and for working on a separation agreement. She was didn’t like a few items in it, so I changed or deleted what she was uncomfortable with. She agreed to sign an agreement last Tuesday. Then emailed me an hour later to tell me that she thinks I am being sneaky about something in the agreement but she is tired of dealing with me and will sign. I don’t know why she thinks I am being sneaky, I have asked her on several occasions what she wanted changed or deleted in agreement. A few hours later she emails me that she will not sign and is getting a second opinion (someone from her work must be talking to her). After a week, I called and emailed her a few times to see if she got a second opinion and she emailed me back to stop harassing her. I haven’t contacted her since.
She told me that she isn’t signing anything and everything we agreed upon is in texts and emails. I told her that I want everything on one legal document.
I called her lawyer and left a message for him to call me back. His website strongly recommends a separation agreement and I mentioned this. I also sent him an email. I mentioned that I am willing to do separation agreement with her but can’t contact her about it (or the house or car). This has been 3 days ago and I still have not received a response.
What do i do now?
