Unfortunately, your spouse still has the right to jump in at any time, and can even ask the court to vacate the judgment after it’s been finalized, though they’ll need to have a good reason for the court to agree to it.
The truth of the matter is that the deadlines in place represent hurdles to actions, but not barriers.
Even if the response deadline has passed, your spouse may still walk into court with a lawyer at their side, asking the judge to hear their version of the settlement agreement.
Default divorce looks great on paper, but when one spouse changes their mind, it can throw the entire process into chaos.
Protect yourself with steady, experienced legal help.
