There is no problem with an uncontested divorce and you would not have to be present. However you do not want to be charged with attorney fees. The best ting would be a marital settlement agreement that can be entered in the court. Here is the CA information on divorce.
This sounds weird but my husband said he is embarrassed too because in this same court I have a an open child support case which was never settle and we both agree that if I dont have to be there that the judge will enter a default then he wil have the divorce papers drawn up and I would just sign them. He has agreed to pay all attorney fees just to get this mess cleared up and that his assets are protected he also doesnt want my little 8yr old to even no that he wants a divorce for she would feel extremly hurt. And our hearing is tomarrow and I did not receive paperwork in a timely manner it was l less than 2 weeks ago. thank you for your help.
