I filed divorce papers against my wife last April. She, of course, was difficult and contested. I have yet to agree to what she contested because she wants me to pay for her car, credit cards, etc., which I am NOT willing to pay for.
So my question is, I have heard that in the State of Florida if the divorce papers sit in the court system for a year, it becomes in the Petitioner's defense. Is this true?
I cannot afford an attorney - I can afford payment arrangements but I can't give someone any sort of retainer. Plus I have unfortunately just lost my job. I've also just had a baby with my now fiance. I want to get this done and over with!
