You may need to enter into a default proceeding if your spouse refuses to sign the paperwork for your divorce. Regardless of your spouse’s reasons for refusing to sign, they cannot legally prevent you from getting a divorce. A default proceeding is like a forfeiture. The Court will assume that if your spouse had any disagreement regarding the documents, your spouse would have made them known. Since your spouse has not cooperated, the Judge is now forced to rule in your favor. If your spouse is refusing to sign, or being uncooperative, our attorneys can assist you with your divorce.
