Have all the documents been filed with the court? Who initiated the divorce proceedings, you or your spouse?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
yes everything is filed. my wife initiated it.
I see. Thank you for clarifying that Dayalan.Since there are no issues for the court to decide, it is not typically imperative that both spouses appear at the hearing. Since she initiated the proceedings though, it normally would be best for her to have the JAG draft a letter indicating why she will not be available and provide that to the court at the hearing. Courts will normally grant a divorce based on the pleadings if there are no remaining issues to decide even if one of the parties is unable to attend, but out of an abundance of caution, a letter from the JAG (or commanding officer) would help ensure the case will not be delayed because of her deployment.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
