A: I presume you filed for a Divorce by publication in a newspaper of general circulation for (30) days. If you have counsel, after the ad has run its course, then a Motion for Default Judgment is required to be filed with the court. the court will set a hearing date and then yo will be granted a divorce. Please keep in mind that if you do not have personal service of your spouse, the court will not grant you child support or alimony, just a divorce according to law.

if you do not have counsel, please contact me, Ingram Law LLC 205-335-2640, Joseph A. Ingram
