So basically, I filed for divorce, he filed a waiver of service. On it, it says by signing, you give up all legal rights to this case.
So, can I go ahead and finish my divorce paperwork and schedule my hearing? Or, does my husband have to sign the divorce decree too? Please let me know, this is really important to me.I am getting conflicting answers. The exact wording on the waiver he filed is as follows-- Warning: By signing this form, you give up all your legal rights in this case. Do not sign if you want to know what the court will order in your divorce. You can waive your right to be served, but keep your other rights, by filing an answer instead. You can find an Answer form at www.freeteaxsforms.org with the divorce-with children forms. --So, can I go ahead and finish up my divorce without his signature? Thanks.
