In the United States a person does not need their spouse's consent to obtain a divorce. You cannot force your spouse to remain married by refusing to sign the divorce documents. Courts have a process by which a non cooperating party can be given notice by a publication and the divorce procedure will proceed. It may take longer and cost more. You need to check the laws in your state since laws vary from state to state.



You should consult with an attorney or inquire at your local family court.You cannot be imprisoned in a unsuccessful marriage by your spouse's refusal to cooperate.

In most countries it is usually the same process. You must file for divorce in France and they will require that you serve them with the divorce papers and this is accomplished with your spouses signature as proof that he received the divorce papers. One thing...It DOES NOT have to be his/her signature as receiving the papers. For example if it is sent to where your spouse works any signature will do as it is understood that your spouse was the final recipient of the divorce papers. If his personal or business address is NOT KNOWN then you will be required to publish in the last city where your spouse was known to live or you believe he/she is living an article stating that you have filed for divorce. In the USA it is usually a 4-6 month process. It may vary in France.


The judge or magistrate can compel them to sell the papers. They can also in some cases decide a divorce case without a signature.
