What if my spouse is served with divorce but does not answer?
If your spouse if served but they do not answer the divorce petition within 20 days of the date they receive it, then you can get what’s called a default divorce. What that means is that the clerk will enter a notice saying the other person has not filed an answer. If they haven’t filed an answer then they are not disputing anything so the court can actually grant your divorce without the part needing to agree to it. Call or email us at All Family Law Group, P.A. and we will schedule a free consultation and provide more information.
