Good afternoon. What is it that he is asking you to sign? Is this an uncontested divorce at this time?
There should be a button for the phone call request that you can make
Do you see a button for the additional offer?
I just proposed it, so there should be something for you to click to accept it.
Ok. We can just chat here. If he mailed you the papers, I am inclined to believe it is for an uncontested/simplified divorce. This can be done and used when the parties agree on everything. You shared that you do not agree with what he wrote, so you do not have to sign anything. If you can not agree, then it would be contested and he would have to go back and obtain and file the necessary forms and have you served by a process server or Sheriff. Once that is done, you will have 20 days to respond and can object to the allegations in his complaint/petition. Unless you were served with a document that stated a specific period of time to respond, you do not have to sign anything, since it is contested and you are not agreeing to what he proposed.
