Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
We reside in El Paso County, El Paso Texas. There is no signature on the papers he is currently asking her to sign. She was formally served with an original petition for divorce. She was later asked to sign a waiver, but it was something he just typed up and she refused. He has since given her various versions of waivers and decrees, so now we are just confused.
She is in complete agreement regarding the divorce, but wants to change some things within the decree. She is not sure how to make changes and how to move things forward to a legitimate finalization.
