I've been separated for 12 years. Our son has quit school and will be 18 in two months. I want to remarry and she won't sign any kind of divorce papers. How can I move on with my life with her trying to hang on to me?

Get an attorney and file for divorce. She'll be served with papers and given a fair amount of time to sign them. If she fails to do so, the judge can grant the divorce without her signing the papers - it will go on record. To contest the divorce, she'll have to hire an attorney, spend lots of money, and probably still not be able to stop it, just postpone it a little longer.

File for divorce. Years ago if the spouse refused to sign, you were stuck. Not any more. She refuses to sign, no biggie. Your attorney can take care of it.

Brian, I don't know where you live, but here after several attempts for the other half to sign divorce papers and they refuse it is granted any way. I had a friend whose parents went through this years ago.

The wife would not sign, so after several attempts her lawyer told her she just as well sign them because he would get the divorce any way. Talk with your lawyer something can be done!
