They Won't Sign the Papers

    One of the common concerns among those filing for divorce is that their spouse is refusing to grant them a divorce. The other spouse may say things like “I’ll never sign anything!” “God is the only judge of me, and you can’t get a divorce over my religious objections!” or “I’m not setting foot inside a courthouse.” This refusal to cooperate in the divorce process is extremely stressful to the spouse seeking a divorce.

    The good news is that if the statutory and procedural requirements for a divorce are met, a Michigan Court may enter a Judgment of Divorce even if other spouse object,s and even if the other spouse absolutely refuses to participate. There are specific statutory requirements, court rules, notice requirements, and procedures that must be followed. We can help you through every step of this process.
