As between a Waiver of Service versus. an Answer, which one will keep a spouse from getting served and still require both signatures to finalize the divorce?
Question Details: We have one child together and have agreed upon terms of a divorce; she is going to file the petition. She wants me to sign a waiver of service so she doesn't have to pay to have me served. Do I still get to sign the final decree for the divorce to be final? Also, if I go an file an answer to the divorce after she files the petition can this act as notification to the court? I want to make sure that I have the option of not signing the final decree and getting an attorney if anything changes on the court date.
