Shellie Zimmerman Seeks Divorce By Default
On Jan. 13, 2014, Shellie Zimmerman’s attorney, Kelly Sims, filed a motion for a default, and a deputy clerk of courts signed one the same day.
Shellie Zimmerman has requested the judge to stop delays and grant her a divorce. Shellie filed for divorce on September 5, 2013. George Zimmerman was served with summons and the complaint on December 18, 2013 while in jail on a domestic violence charge. He was required to file an answer within 20 days. That time has now expired. He has defaulted and Shellie wants her divorce without his participation in the case.
In a default judgment dissolving the marriage, the judge can grant the divorce, grant property to each party now in their possession, and reserve other matters, such as distributing assets.
The best to you, Shellie.
