My husband lives in other state and does not want to travel to Maryland for divorce hearing. He did not attend a scheduling conference either. A year ago we signed a separation agreement stating that he is leaving all property to me. But now he ...
I agree. When your spouse does not appear for trial to argue their case and present evidence, then your spouse's defense will not be heard. If you have a valid property agreement, you can admit that into evidence. However, if the agreement for some reason is invalid or you otherwise do not introduce the agreement to the court, you will have to testify as to what marital property you both have. Just keep in mind that the court cannot generally transfer ownership in property like cars and your house (unless you have a valid agreement agreeing to the transfer) but instead gives you a money award.
An attorney would be advised to review your agreement or otherwise go to court with you.

I agree with Nathan's answer. Although you can attempt to avoid bankruptcy by attempting to return the property, the creditor usually will demand a partial payment of the total balance rather giving you a total writeoff of the debt. Either way, your credit report may also show the writeoff. The creditor may also just put your account in collection status and chase you for the debt after you return the property (car). If appropriate, bankruptcy is a simplier process, but there are limitations as Nathan has outlined above.

My boyfriend is in the middle of divorcing his wife (they have been separated for some time). He served her papers in January, she did not sign them, then the court set them up with a status conference. My boyfriend showed up but his soon to be ex...
The main question is whether she filed an answer to the complaint. If not, your boyfriend would need to file and obtain a default. She cannot get anything when in default. If she files an answer and contests any aspect of the divorce, it would get more complicated. Your boyfriend should consult an attorney for legal advise on his case.See question
