    Default Can Somebody Else Appear For You At Court Hearings


    Can someone help me with some questions about my divorce?

    I am currently reside in Texas. My husband and I live in different counties due to school /work situation and simply grew apart. We do not have assets nor children together. The process should be simplier since we are still on talking terms also. Therefore, I plan on doing pro se divorce. In understand there is a 60-day waiting period in Texas. However, I will in relocated to a different state due to work/school by the end of the 60-day period.

    Is it possible for me to give a friend power of attorney to attend court for me?

    Thank you

    Default Re: Can Somebody Else Appear For You At Court Hearings

    Your lawyer may be able to appear for you at certain court hearings. At certain others you would be required to attend. It's generally possible to do a simple divorce, with a consent judgment and no kids, based upon the appearance at the final hearing of only one party - but if that party is to be your soon-to-be-ex, you will want to be sure that you trust him to enter the judgment as agreed.
