Divorce & Annulment

questions & answers

Question: My husband filed for a divorce.  Do I have to file a response or can I just let it default after the 20 days if I agree with everything on the paperwork I was given in regards to the property he wants?

Answer: According to the Superior Court Response Instruction Packet there are three things you can do once you receive the petition. You can do nothing and let it default, file a consent decree or stipulate with your spouse (in terms of property, debt, spousal maintenance/support (alimony), and everything else about the marriage) or file a disagreement response.
