What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas
My wife and I do not live in the same city. I have filed the petition for divorce with the county clerk in Harris county (she lives in Randall county), and there is no legitimate reason to contest our divorce. I understand that she must either sign the waiver and return it to me so that I can file it, or she must file an answer. What no one will tell me is how long she has to do either of these things. How long do I have to file the Waiver now that the petition has been filed? I understand that I will have to have her served by a process server if she either does not respond, or refuses to sign. How long am I supposed to wait before I have her served? And how will exceeding whatever time period is allowed affect my filing?
