What is a default divorce?

lena nguyen family law attorney divorce lawyer houston texas californiaIf you filed for divorce, your spouse has to file an answer with the court. It is essentially a response. If your spouse does not file an answer and does not do anything in response to the divorce papers that were served on him or her, then you are entitled to a default divorce. You are allowed to ask the court to grant you a divorce without your spouse’s input or approval. Most often, the judge will not just give you everything you ask for. It has to be within reason, and you have to present evidence.
