Question: 

My brother in law is in the army and his wife served him divorce papers. But she will not sign them now. He has two kids and I was wondering what he could do to have her sign them? And when he was in Iraq she was sleeping with other people and her bills were getting paid by that other person. My brother in law had proof. Could he use that some how? He is in Texas at Fort Hood but he got served the papers in Hawaii.

State: 
Washington

Answer: 

If the spouse filed the original papers in another state and now refuses to sign them, they will eventually have to be re-filed or there is no case before the court. It sounds like your brother-in-law might need to file his own papers if he wants a divorce. There are different rules for military personnel getting divorced, and he can find out more at his current base through the legal assistance offices. – The Divorce.com Team
