If a person is getting a divorce and children are involved can a divorce be not granted or put off if one party doesnt want to sign divorce for counseling?
In Alabama, even if one party does not want the divorce to proceed, the other party can still get the divorce granted by filing for a default judgment. Since children are involved, I would not let the divorce get to this stage. At a default judgment hearing, the party requesting will more than likely be granted most of what they request while you are left out in the cold.

Also, giving the child an outlet to speak his/her mind during the process is important, such as a counselor.
It depends on a lot of things. First, are children involved? If yes, then the court can mandate family counseling. How much shared property do you have, and can you reasonably divide it between yourselves without a lawyer? Of course then it depends on if you are both willing to sign the divorce papers. If yes, then it could be as little as 6 months. If no, then it could take years. Or, if both…

However, if you can research the forms online and type them up yourself and have both parties sign, you can get a divorce for only the filing costs (which in Tulsa county at the time of my divorce were about $45). Voila, divorce on the cheap.
If my wife in Bahamas refuses to sign the divorce papers what can I do to have the divorce recognized?
