Theoretically the law cannot be biased in accordance with gender, race, religion, ethnicity, social/economic status and so forth; in reality it depends upon the judge. In "perfect" courts a sitting judge would not allow personal experiences or prejudices to have a bearing on adjudication. In the majority of instances this holds true, but unfortunately there are those judges who abuse judicial power to further their personal agenda. Generally both persons in a dissolution of marriage procedure will receive equal consideration. Nevertheless, in many cases, at least one of the participants will believe the decision(s) rendered were biased.

The courts that handle divorce differ depending on the location. In most states in the U. S. , state courts have a Family and Juvenile Law section. Sometimes this section is located within the local courthouse and other times it is located elsewhere. This section is the one that handles divorce cases.

It usually means the answer is biased towards one particular opinion. For a simple example - a question like "Which is the best phone" might get the answer "The I-phone" - A users opinion of a particular phone will be biased towards the type of phone they are familiar with - rather than based on physical facts.

Unfortunately, no. If one party to a marriage wants to get a divorce, then it will be granted with or without the consent of the other party. Courts simply will not enforce a situation where it is no longer working for some. You have the right to contest the divorce but declining the divorce will not stop the procedure from happening.

It means having groups of people that have a common interest and are influenced by those interests. Poor people are biased towards shopping for lower prices. Rich people are biased toward spending more and living a better life. In politics, biased groups can be Hispanics, blacks, Democrats, Republicans, women, Jewish people, etc. Each one is presumed to be biased towards their own particular group. For instance, the group of black people were biased to vote for the only black man to run for president. The bias of the group influenced them to vote for him because he was black, not because he would be a good president.

Someone who is not biased towards one side or the other. An example would be a court judge who looks at the evidence only in determing who is right.

To the best of my knowledge, I know of nowhere in the civilized world where anybody would be "forced" to divorce.AnswerCouples will never be "forced" to divorce, but if one party to the marriage successfully seeks a divorce through the relevant courts, then the marriage is deemed to be terminated and both parties are therefore divorced, even if one of them wishes to remain married.

I assume you are saying that one wife filed for divorce and you have married someone else? If the divorce from the first wife has not been finalized and granted by the courts, you are still legally married to the first one and YOU are the bigamist.

If one says that a website, book or article is biased, one means that it is one-sided and not objective.

Yes you can. It doesn't matter one iota where in the US you were married. As long as you are a legal resident of VA, you can file in the courts there.

You do not "file" foreign marriages in the United States. If you are legally married and want a divorce, you must file for divorce.

Wikianswers is not one unified body. However it does seem as though the members are more tolerant and accepting than other groups. This, I have absolutely no issue with.

One can become a respondent in a divorce case when their partner files for a divorce. The one who files the divorce is the petitioner and the other partner is the respondent.

-You would look for the wording to see if the information has been set towards one side or not. -Usually biased information are to do with no one really knowing the truth such as 'Do aliens exist?'. -You would also look if it is an opinion which means it is unbiased. -Look for a fair viewpoint for the topic which reasons for good and bad. -I fancy Georgina Miners.

A biased error is one that is caused by a factor inherent to the source of the error. An unbiased error is one that comes from anywhere.
