What if I Do Not Agree to a Divorce?

You do not have to agree to a divorce, but you would accomplish nothing positive by fighting, resisting or ignoring it.  Your spouse can essentially get a divorce with or without your involvement or input.  If you refuse to meaningfully participate in your divorce, a court will grant a divorce by default.  The terms will be largely determined by whatever  your spouse requests in your absence.  For more information on why it is foolish to refuse to agree to a divorce, please read our blog article entitled, “What if I Don’t Agree to a Divorce?”
