that i will be be devoid of my rights because he has kept me in a bad situation right now. We are in an informal separation and he wants a divorce and will not file as he fears i will contest and things will get messy. I dont want a divorce in the first place because i want to reconcile but things are not turning out that way. I told him he can go ahead with the divorce and i wont contest it and want to keep it as amicable as possible but i would want to contest it if any of my rights are hampered. I want to know specifically if: - Will he still have to serve me the papers in case of an uncontested divorce that i can contest later on visualizing that my rights are being hampered?; - Will i be able to contest that divorce later on being served the papers? (if any). I dont want to sign if so
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
An uncontested divorce is one in which spouses agree on relevant issues such as division of property, child custody/support, and alimony.
