My wife has annulled our marriage. Are we considered legally divorced?

My wife has annulled our marriage. Are we considered legally divorced?

Yes, if your marriage was annulled, you are considered to be legally divorced. You may be able to obtain a certificate documenting the annulment from the court where the annulment was filed.


I live in a 'Fault' state. What happens if I can't prove fault? Do I have to stay married?

I live in a 'Fault' state. What happens if I can't prove fault? Do I have to stay married?

If you live in a 'Fault' state, a judge will generally not grant a divorce unless a) both parties agree on all issues, or b) you can prove fault.


My attorney says I have a "sure case". Is there such a thing?

My attorney says I have a "sure case". Is there such a thing?

There is no such thing as a "sure case". If you enter into litigation, you are putting yourself in a precarious spot, no matter how good you think your case is. You should be wary of any attorney that tells you that you have a "sure case".


What would I be giving up if I agree to give my (soon to be) ex-wife sole custody?

What would I be giving up if I agree to give my (soon to be) ex-wife sole custody?

Basically, "everything". Don't agree to your ex having sole custody, especially if she's shown ANY inclination to interfere with your relationship with your child, or if you suspect she may withhold visitation. You'll be giving up the right to help raise your child, the right to have meaningful input into his or her life, and the right to make decisions as to what may be best for the child.

With sole custody, could she change the schedule of visitation established in the parenting plan?

With sole custody she can do whatever she wants to, and you will have virtually NO SAY in her decisions, no matter what they are. She doesn't need to change the parenting plan, because she can do whatever she wants to, and you'll have to fight it in court, which is very expensive, time-consuming, and has a very low success rate.
After receiving sole custody, could she change anything that was established in the original divorce settlement?
Again, she'll be able to do whatever she wants; she won't need to legally change anything. You'll have no say in what goes on, and she will be able to deny your visitation for any reason or for no reason at all. You will have NO recourse except through the courts, which will defer to her on nearly everything.



My spouse is serving in the Armed Forces, stationed in another country. Can I still file for divorce?

My spouse is serving in the Armed Forces, stationed in another country. Can I still file for divorce?

Yes, you can file for divorce, regardless of where your spouse is. They don't have to be in the same State or country as you. Contact an attorney to file papers and start the divorce action. Your attorney will know how to proceed.
