Divorce & Annulment

questions & answers

Question: My husband has said that he filed for divorce but I don't want it. Is there some way that it could go through even if I don't agree to it or if I don't sign the divorce papers.

Answer: Proceedings in family law can be complex. Since one party is affirming (your husband) and one party is denying (you) that the marriage is irretrievably broken, the court will still hold a hearing to determine if that is so. (ARS 25-316) (http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/ars/25/00316.htm&Title=25&DocType=ARS)  You may wish to contact an attorney (http://www.azbar.org/findalawyer) for further information or for advice about your specific case.
