Just curious......

What happens when one person in a marriage wants a divorce and the other one doesn't. What happens if they will not sign the papers? No divorce?

  • They cannot stop the divorce. In the end, the judge will grant it but there have to be papers filed. Cannot remember what they are though.

  • Actually you don't really need the other persons signature, as long as someone files the papers the judge will grant it with or without the other persons signature, that happened to a family friend her husband didn't want to sign the papers or even show up to court & it worked in her favor because she got everything she asked for plus the divorce.

  • More misery for both parties. You can't make someone love you. Life is short. No life for either one.

  • There are loopholes... just gotta have a good lawyer who knows what he/she is doing.
