If your spouse refuses to sign the agreement that you have proposed, he/she may propose an alternate agreement, or may refuse. If the two of you cannot reach an agreement on your own, you may have to attend court ordered mediation.
If you still cannot reach an agreement, you will have a trial. You will have to wait for the court to set a trial date. Depending on the area, how busy they are, and any state waiting periods, you may get a trial date anywhere from 3 months to 3 years after initially filing.
When a Spouse Does Not Sign Divorce Papers When a spouse refuses to sign divorce papers, the spouse seeking a divorce will need to obtain what is called a contested divorce. To file a contested divorce, the party who wishes to obtain the divorce must file a petition in the family court in their jurisdiction. Only the spouse who is filing for the divorce must sign, however, the spouse requesting the divorce usually must serve the other spouse with process. Service of process means that the other spouse is given notice that they have been sued. In a divorce situation, serving the other spouse with process means that the other spouse is notified that their spouse has filed for divorce and given a chance to appear. Contested Divorce Modernly, courts have moved past the traditional requirements of finding cause for a divorce. In fact, every court offers no-fault divorce. However, even a no-fault divorce can end in one of two ways, it can be contested or uncontested. When a spouse refuses to sign divorce papers, the divorce is no longer placed on hold, but instead considered contested. Once the divorce becomes contested, a hearing must take place in order to establish the reasons for contesting the divorce and for the court to resolve those reasons. If both spouses show for the hearing, the court will determine the legal terms of the divorce through testimony and evidence. The court will also decide on all settlements and divisions of property. In the mean time, there are some things that you can do to try and resolve the issues and avoid allowing the court to make the decisions for you. Divorce by Default Proceeding If the spouse refuses to show for the scheduled divorce hearing and all attempts at negotiating have failed, the original filing spouse has the right to request a default divorce. In this instance, the court will uphold the divorce request and all of the original terms. This means that all divisions of property, child support amounts and custodial arrangements listed in the divorce papers will be the court's final decision. The reason the courts make this decision is because the court considers the opposing spouse's absence to be an agreement to the terms of the divorce. The court will make the default finding as long as the other spouse was truly served with the petition.
If your spouse will sign divorce papers, you can get a divorce in Alabama more easily, more quickly, and without paying as much money. It's possible that if you and your spouse are able to talk openly and honestly with each other, you'll be able to reach agreement on terms of a divorce and both sign the papers. But that's not what you asked, is it? If your spouse just refuses to sign anything or talk about divorce, and if you know where he or she lives, you have no choice but to file for divorce and get service of process on your spouse. This will trigger a requirement that your spouse file an answer within 30 days of having been served. If your spouse fails to answer, you can file an application with the clerk to have your spouse declared in default. The court will set a hearing at which you will appear and give testimony, and soon after that the court will issue a divorce decree. If your spouse DOES file an answer, you and your spouse will have entered an adversarial divorce, in which you and your spouse each maneuver for advantage and to acquire the information you need to present your case in a divorce trial. Most adversarial divorces don't actually get to a trial. Most get resolved before that in negotiation (the same kind of negotiation you and your spouse could do now for free if you both could be cooperative). It's hard to say how long an adversarial divorce would take or how much it would cost, because it depends so much on your lawyers and the positions each of you takes as you negotiate with each other.

It varies from person to person and depends if there are children, properties or a substantial amount of money involved. In British Columbia, Canada, once you have been separated from your spouse for 7 years you can request a divorce document (as long as you have not had anything to do with your ex.) You can also have your lawyer push for the divorce. If you have a lawyer it sounds as if he/she is not doing their job well. If you don't have a lawyer I suggest you get one. I tried getting a divorce the easy way from my ex, but he was doing the same thing your husband is doing (just being nasty) and I had to get a lawyer and even at that it took me 2 years to get that divorce.
