Q&A: My wife is the petitioner of our divorce and has moved out of state, does she have to be present in court?
Question by Nessamessa: My wife and I have been separated for 7 years. We have a 17 1//2 year old son. We finally decided to proceed with our divorce now that he is older. She filed as the petitioner, our divorce is uncontested. We both live in different states. The problem is we are in the finalization process and she can’t attend court. I can, but I am the respondent. My question is does she need to be there during the finalization of our divorce? I will be able to attend.
