Divorce can be an extremely contentious time for couples. Either or both spouses can feel emotionally volatile during this process. Tempers run high, and people can become belligerent about even meaningless arguments after one spouse brings up divorce. Because spouses either don't want the divorce or want to prevent their spouses from getting what they want, they can sometimes refuse to sign the divorce papers. Whether or not this is a last-ditch effort to prevent the divorce from occurring, if this happens to you, you're not without options.
