the divorce was filed on July 31,2007 abd nothing has been done since April 7, 2008. I am to the understanding that if nothing is done with the case for a year it will be dropped is that true?
Also if you are ordered to pay alimony to the other person and they put the divorce on hold are you still oblicated to pay the alimony?
And do papers need to be filed requesting that the divorce be put on hold?
