PREVIOUS ANSWER BY ANOTHER USER: No, you can not. I was married and got pregnant twice by the same man but married to another and I couldn't get a divorce until paternity was established through the attorney general. Annd I live in Houston Texas. MY ADDITION: That is not necessarily true because I filed for divorce and a year passed before we went to court and I was 8 months pregnant. Ultimately, it is up to the judge to decide. Because I had filed for divorce a year before and because we lived over 400 miles from each other the judge granted my divorce even though I was pregnant. The reason they are very cautious of granting divorces when pregnant is because they don't want to release the husband if it is possible that the child is his. If they do then when the child is born, there would not be a responsible father; therefore resulting in the child becoming a burden for the state (medicaid, foodstamps, etc.) This was in Victoria, Texas, and they normally will not grant the divorce when pregnant, but there is no YES/NO answer. The judge decides, depending on your circumstances, etc.
