Arnold Schwarzenegger Still Hasn’t Signed Four Year Old Divorce Papers: Can He Do That?

How long does it take to sign divorce papers? If you are Arnold Schwarzenegger, four years… and counting.

Schwarzenegger’s wife, Maria Shriver, filed for divorce in 2011 after the shocking revelation that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child outside their marriage. According to a report from TMZ, the actor and former governor of California still hasn’t signed the divorce papers.

TMZ’s sources say that there are no remaining issues holding up the process, save a simple sign off by the former Governator.

Whatever his reasons for dragging his feet might be, I found my self wondering not “why would he do that?” but “can he do that?”

Since I am not a lawyer – although I played one in a not-even-good-enough-for-youtube comedy short once – I asked David Wilkinson of Wilkinson & Finkbeiner in Orange County and Steven Kampf of the Kampf Law Firm in San Diego.

First, can Arnold do that? Simply not sign?

“It depends. There are two types of divorce cases, uncontested and contested.  If Shriver and the Terminator were trying to do an uncontested divorce case without any court action, then she would have to wait for him to sign a settlement agreement.  There is nothing she could do to force him to agree or sign a divorce judgment.  However, if she wants to apply some pressure to get him to sign, then there are certain things she could try.” – David Wilkinson

What happens if – like Arnold – you don’t sign your divorce papers?

“If another party doesn’t respond to a divorce petition, the other party can seek a Default Judgment against them.  If there is no response after 30 days, they can file a request to enter a default judgment.  Once this is done, the court will usually set a court date for a default judgment prove up; that is a court hearing where the one party would go and prove everything they allege or request in their petition that was never responded to.  This is the proper route to take in this situation.
Now, if the Governator did respond to the original petition (which is very likely or Maria would have already gotten a default judgment against him), then the best thing for her to do would be to address this at the Family Resolution Conference (aka Status Conference).  The court automatically sets these FRCs about every six months.  Basically the purpose of a FRC is to see the status of the case.”  – Steven Kampf

What would Maria’s options be to get this divorce finalized?

“Assuming Arnold has any sort of lawyer working on his case, they would never let a default happen. Instead, she could propound discovery, start taking depositions, etc.  This may prompt Arnold to take action to finish the case.

She could file an “At Issue Memorandum” with the court, requesting that the court set a Mandatory Settlement Conference or trial (this depends on what’s been done in the case to date). Note, judges are under relatively strict “orders” to make sure cases get concluded in a timely fashion.  There is nothing prohibiting the judge from hauling everyone into court and setting deadlines, etc.

Ultimately, there are a series of laws that allow the court to “fast track” a case, set discovery deadlines, etc.  This is probably Maria’s best course of action.  They can mediate the case, hire a privately compensated judge (usually a retired judge) to handle the case (which will certainly speed things along), etc.  They would both have to agree to this course of action, however.” – David Wilkinson

Are there any real legal ramifications for Arnold or someone in a similar situation?

“If Arnold continues to drag his feet, Maria could tell the court that Arnold is failing to participate after filing his response to the petition. The court can then do a number of things to get him to participate, one being finding him in contempt of court (more on that here). She could also file a request for Order for sanctions on Arnold for various reasons if he is not complying with certain statutory timelines, etc.” – Steven Kampf

Is this kind of thing common in divorce cases?
“Believe it or not, no this is not that common.  A true default case rarely happens unless parties have zero assets and no kids.  The latter case is even more rare, when a party responds to a petition or participates for a bit and then disappears.  This is because the court has the power to punish someone for failing to participate (after their initial filing) by ordering sanctions, or finding someone in contempt for ailing to abide by court orders.  They can also move the case along without the party participating.” – Steven Kampf

From Swept Off Her Feet To Divorce Papers In 2 Years – What Happened?

How does a couple go from sparks flying and tying the knot to the verge of signing divorce papers … in only two years?

Vicki and Mark’s final divorce hearing is next week, but they turn to Dr. Phil for one last-ditch effort to save their two-year marriage. “If our marriage can’t be fixed on the show, I am definitely ready to finalize our divorce next week,” says Vicki.

Watch the video above as they reveal how their relationship went from love at first sight to this painful crossroads.

“About six months into our marriage, our relationship took kind of a turn,” recalls Mark, who says his wife has kicked him out of the house nine times since they tied the knot. (Vicki estimates it to be closer to four or five times.)

How To Fight Fair (If You Don’t, It Could Mean Divorce)

“Mark lied about the amount of money he said he was making per year,” claims Vicki. “I feel like a sugar momma and I don’t like feeling that way.” She adds, “Mark has been very greedy, selfish and narcissistic … The last two years have been the worst two years of my life.”

Mark, who does not want to split up, sees it differently. “I think Vicki is obsessed with money,” he says. “Her expectations are really high. It seems like everything I do for Vicki is not good enough for her. I can’t read her mind!”

5 Questions You Need To Ask Before You Decide To Divorce

Vicki also claims Mark is a liar and a cheater, pointing to his text messages with a 21-year-old that she believes were inappropriate. “I was hurt and devastated,” she says.

“Vicki is obsessed with the idea that I’m cheating on her,” says Mark, who is willing to take a lie detector test to prove his fidelity. “Vicki is very jealous and she demands a lot of attention,” he explains. “It’s gotten so bad that she has visions of me having sex with another woman.”

Can this marriage be saved? What happens when Mark takes a lie detector test? Watch more from Wednesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, “The Clock Is Ticking And If Dr. Phil Can’t Help Us, My Wife Is Divorcing Me Next Week.”

Kindergarten Papers

One morning while passing out a paper in my daughter’s kindergarten class, the teacher asked the children if they know what they were supposed to do
when they were given papers. My daughter was the only child to raise her hand eagerly to answer.

The teacher asked her if she could tell the class what they were supposed to do when given papers. My daughter replied, “We are supposed to put our
name at the top and then wait for destructions.”

Brooklyn Woman Serves Husband Divorce Papers On Facebook

You can now serve divorce papers on Facebook. It may not be a trend (yet) but it worked for a Brooklyn woman after a judge ruled in her favor.

Ellanora Arthur Baidoo has been trying to track down her ex-hubby-to-be, Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku. She was obviously frustrated with his nonsense, so when Blood-Dzaku told her that he didn’t have an address or a job in which to send the paperwork, she got crafty.

Reports CNN:

After exhausting other ways of serving him the papers, Spinnell filed an application asking for “service by alternate means,” in this case, via social media.

In his decision, Justice Matthew Cooper said the “advent and ascendency of social media,” means sites like Facebook and Twitter are the “next frontier” as “forums through which a summons can be delivered.”

Before Cooper agreed to her using Facebook, Baidoo had to prove the Facebook account belongs to her husband, and that he consistently logs on to the account and would therefore see the summons.

Spinnell said Baidoo’s marriage to Blood-Dzraku began to unravel shortly after they married in 2009 because her husband refused to participate in a Ghanian wedding ceremony that would include both their families

The couple never lived together, according to court documents.

The down part of this story is Baidoo still can’t reach this guy. If she doesn’t respond to the papers soon she’ll be grants a “divorce by default.”

Social media is really taking over.
