Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns. I am a Pennsylvania licensed professional and will do my best to help.I am sorry to hear that you are being held hostage. Luckily for you there is a condition under PA law that entitles anyone and everyone to a divorce, meaning that one party cannot hold out and refuse to grant a divorce to the other. However to get that divorce granted by default you would need to wait exactly 2 years from the date you filed for divorce. In essence if he refuses to sign and holds out, you would need to wait another 8 months and then file for a default divorce order. This is the fastest avenue known to you at this time under PA law, and the surest to prevail.Good luck.
