Q: Filed my divorce we had to do a mediation I deployed prior to that, unknown on status who do I contact now to finish?
After filing the divorce both parties submitted documents. We had a scheduled mediation I was unable to attend because I got deployed for 10months, now I’m back and don’t know who I contact or if I have to start all over from the beginning?
A: You should contact the court/court clerk where the case was originally filed to check the status of things and whether you will need to refile. You could also contact your spouse to assess as well.
A: You need to check with the court to determine the status. It is possible the divorce was finalized without you. It is also possible the case was dismissed if no one moved it along. Finally, it is possible that it is still pending. You need to know so you know how to proceed
