As the respondent I have been told since we have an agreement that I do not have to attend and my spouse being the petitioner will attend. My question is since I do not have an attorney and she will be called by her attorney as a witness, do I have any rights to question her about details that she may enter into the record and can I call myself as a witness to clarify any information that was not reported correctly in the agreement.
You have the right to testify and to call witnesses. Consult family law counsel and try to get representation. You state "my final divorce hearing is 10/8/2018." That date has passed. You should attend all court hearings unless otherwise advised.
