Hello,I have filed a divorce last March and it was uncontested. We have a status conference next month and my husband said he will not attend to it..I was wondering what will happen, is this okay, will the divorce still be granted?I do not have an attorney...we were married 5 years no children, and I am not requesting any Alimony or assets cause we do not have any..
State/Country relating to question: California
Thank you for allowing me to assist you.
Yes, you can still get a divorce even if he refuses to attend the conference.
Hi, how will this going to happen?
The status conference is just an opportunity for the court to know whether or not you are ready for trial. You can either prepare an agreed Judgment and submit it to the court, or if the case is no longer agreed, you can attend the settlement conference and say that you are ready for trial.
I am from California, how will I do the agreed judgment?
If you have an agreement, here are the instructions for finishing up your divorce.
If he refuses to cooperate, this would be the procedure.
Each county may have some local requirements as well.
thanks I will read and study the link you sent..
In either case, you cannot get the divorce granted at the status conference.
Is there any other information I can provide for you?
thats it thank you
