I am currently overseas in the military and husband is civilian living in the US. We we married April 2002 and we have been seperated since July 2002. I have filed for divorce and he has been served by sheriff. However, he is not contesting to the divorce anymore. We have no kids, no property and no finances together.
According to the divorce summons, if he does not respond in 30 days then I win by default. If I am not available to attend the hearing due to job, may I have a family member represent me in court for the default with a general power of attorney?
