JESSA Duggar’s sister-in-law Jessica Seewald’s divorce is moving forward uncontested, as her estranged husband admitted to the “rudeness, hate, abuse and neglect” allegations she made against him, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
Jessica filed for divorce from her husband Dwight Phillips Lester on May 21, 2021 after just two years of marriage.

In the divorce filing exclusively obtained by The Sun, Jessica listed their separation date as April 16, 2021, two years after they tied the knot on May 18, 2019.
Jessica is seeking a divorce on the grounds that Dwight allegedly subjected her to “personal indignities destroying the legitimate ends of the marriage such that the Plaintiff can no longer reside with the Defendant as man and wife.”
Personal indignities in an Arkansas divorce filing could include a “spouse consistently manifesting such rudeness, hate, abuse and neglect” towards their partner to make life “intolerable.”
In Dwight’s response to the filing exclusively obtained by The Sun, he “admits all of the allegations contained” in her complaint for divorce.

He “waived” his right to “plead, answer or appear” in the case and asked the same be done for a potential trial, as he said it could be heard at any time “without notice to, and in the absence” of him.
He added that he has never been involved in a domestic relations case with Jessica.
Dwight said in the court filing that the divorce is “uncontested,” which means the exes do not disagree on matters regarding finances or other divorce-related issues.
He requested the court grant Jessica’s requests in the complaint.
He added in conclusion: “I further waive my rights to notice of trial, findings of fact and conclusions of law, a record of testimony, motion for a new trial, notice of entry of final judgment or decree, and right to appeal.”

Jessica is requesting her maiden name, Seewald, be restored.
She listed their separation date as April 16, 2021, two years after they tied the knot on May 18, 2019.
Jessica exclusively told The Sun: “Yes, I did recently file for divorce.”
Without a Crystal Ball was the first to report on the divorce.
Jessica sparked divorce rumors when she deleted their photos together and changed her name on Instagram.

The split comes as a shock to fans, as divorce goes against the Duggar and Seewald family’s religious beliefs.
One fan wrote on Reddit: “Good for her! I really wonder what the Seewalds and Jessa/Ben think about this.”
Another said: “Good for her. I applaud anyone who can admit that their marriage isn’t working and has the good sense to run for the hills.”
A third commented: “I hope the reason wasn’t anything too awful and her family is supportive of her through this. Wonder how Jessa and Ben feel….”

As Counting On fans know, Jessa, who is expecting her fourth child with Ben, follows her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s modest dress code, as she wears long skirts and dresses, and high necklines.
