How can a divorce be finalized if I refused to sign the divorce papers? Also, why was I not allowed in court for my own divorce?My husband of 24 years left for me for another woman. My ex-husband was already in Wisconsin, living with his tramp and waiting for the divorce to be final so they could marry. I never had a chance to be disruptive in court, seeing as I never got to go in. I had an attorney through Kansas Legal Services, and he only got me 48 months of spousal support. He said it could be modified, and I refused to sign the divorce papers because I did not agree with them. This is my last month of spousal support. I tried to get help from KS Legal Services again, but their answer after the intake was that they are not taking cases like this right now. So, once again I am left hanging in the wind. I am disabled and I had to adopt our granddaughter just to keep her with family. I still got raked over the coals. He had it all set up, had liquidated his 401K, bought a brand new truck, etc., then he told me he wanted the divorce and filed for it.
