My spouse and I had agreed on filing for a uncontested divorce once certain requirements had been met. So far that had not been the case and all of the sudden I am being presented with divorce papers. Do I have to respond at all? My spouse is working overseas and i had met with this attorney in person to talk about what would have to be done to get a divorce. My spouse also participated through a conference call. We agreed on certain terms and I in return would not claim any of our community property and so on. However after reading the petition I don't see any of my terms mentioned. Only his terms. So now Im wondering if I even got served. The attorney told me not to sign anything until I have received what was agreed on. Help?!?!
