My wife hired an attorney just to complete the paperwork in our uncontested divorce. She brought home a waiver of service and said I need to sign it before she can file. Is this true or would it be a mistake to sign it?
I am not licensed to practice law in your state. Therefore, I cannot inform you as to the specific laws of your state and can only provide you with general tips regarding divorce settlement actions.
I would first recommend you consult with an attorney in your state in order to have that attorney review the settlement agreement prior to your signature.
If you are waiving service by mail, then that would most likely be acceptable. However, if you are waiving other forms of service, I would discuss the matter with an attorney in your state. I have talked to many potential clients that do not hire an attorney and sign an unfavorable settlement agreement.
Please have an attorney review the information prior to signature.
