It all depends on what a judge might say. Your wife eventually will have to sign the papers no matter what.

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.

How long is the wait before a divorce can take place if spouse refuses to sign the divorce?

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.

I want to know how to get a divorce without causing distress to the children.?

Getting a divorce without causing emotional harm to the children involved is nearly impossible in most instances. If both parties are civil and do not use the child as a bargaining tool this is a good sign. Also, giving the child an outlet to speak his/her mind during the process is important, such as a counselor.

How long does a Pennsylvania divorce take?

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 parties are in consent (mutual consent divorce), it could take as little as 15 days.

It is his right not to sign the papers. If you cannot amend them to his satisfaction, file them as a 'Contested' divorce and have them served to him along with a summons of court date. He will have to appear in court to explain why he would not sign them. If there are citizenship matters involved, then you probably need an attorney to help you through the situation.

When A Couple Agrees To Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is the easiest divorce that could occur for a couple. The divorce means that both parties involved in the divorce proceedings agree to the divorce and the terms involved. The couple usually decides to get a divorce and go to see a lawyer on their own if the divorce is uncontested. The divorce is usually cheaper when it is uncontested because there is minimal paperwork to be filed and there is usually less work involved with the attorney and judge that sees the divorce proceedings. The first thing that a couple would need to do when they decide to divorce is to sit down together and discuss what items they are sharing and who is keeping what in the home. If the home is shared between the two people, then they would need to make an agreement as to who gets the home and the contents in the home. If there are children between the couple, they can talk about who would get the children on each day of the week. The attorney they see can help them decide the best route to go on dividing everything between the couple. If the couple has nothing to share between them, they can go ahead with the divorce proceedings. A document will be typed by the attorney. One spouse would sign the copy and then it is sent to the other spouse for them to approve. In an uncontested divorce, the other spouse would not object to the document and the contents in it. The couple would sign the document and send it back to the attorney. The attorney would file the document with the court in the county the couple lives in. the divorce is good for the entire state that the couple resides in. The couple can get married after the divorce is filed if they choose to do so. The couple should keep all of the paperwork involved in the proceeding so they will know exactly when the divorce was filed and what is included in the divorce agreement. A divorce usually takes about 30 days to process and become finalized.
