Pro Se Divorce
I filed my own divorce - final on April 2, 2002.
(uncontested/ no children/ no joint property). was able
to get him to sign a waiver stating ....
''... I have received a copy of the Original Petition for
Divorce which I have read and understand.
I hereby enter my appearance in said cause for all
purposes, waive the issuance, service and return of
citation considered by the court and at any time without
further notice to me. I waive the making of record of
Further, I hereby waive all rights and privileges, ...''
Do I still have to get him to sign the final decree before I
appear on Apr. 2?

Re: Pro Se Divorce
Your husband's signature must be notarized in 2 places on the Waiver of Service.
It would be nice if he also signed the Final Decree of Divorce. Most Judges in Harris County do not require that he sign the Final Decree. You might call the court clerk before you appear and see what the Judge's policy is regarding signing the Final Decree.
Best of luck
