Ok. I'm going through what should be a really simple divorce turned complicated. My husband left 20 months ago, as soon as we found out I was pregnant. He hasn't seen his daughter since December, has paid no child support although it's been ordered through the court, and has no phone for me to contact him at. Finally, it seemed like we were at the end of this long dragged-out process, until today when my lawyer informed me that I had to deliver the final papers to him personally. I drove an hour to his house, and much to my dismay, he was not at home (I would have known that if I could have called first). A young woman answered the door (if I had to guess she would be the new girlfriend) and my lawyer told me I could leave the papers with her. We have court tomorrow morning, but the woman informed me that she didn't know if my STBX would be able to be in court because he just started a new job this week.
IT NEVER ENDS. He is getting a FREE divorce, while I support the kids and pay for all if it! I'm fed up with him being in control. I think this latest stunt is just another ploy to have things pushed back - yet another bill for me.
Tomorrow's court date is our final hearing. If he doesn't show up, what happens? I thought noone could force you to stay married to them?!?!?!
Any help or comments would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.
