Yes, in fact the only way you can divorce your husband is while you are married to him.

You cannot get a divorce without being married first.

No, being married outside of the U.S. will not create a problem in obtaining a divorce.

not sure what equity means but i know that you have to be married at least 6-12 months before being able to have a divorce ! i don't think that helps tho!

User Avatar

in law it is where you agree atleast 6 months in advance of your divorce papers being handed into the solicitors, you then have 2 months in which to withdraw your papers.

If two people are not happy being married, then they agree to go through the divorce proceedings.

Yes, if you meet the requirements for being common law married, which are extensive.

You can file for divorce in the state you were married in (even if neither you or your spouse currently live there) or in the states in which you and your spouse are residents of. Typically, to establish residency in a state you need to live there for somewhere between 6 months to 1 year. That being said, it is best to file for divorce where you live now to save yourself the trips to other states but nevertheless you have options.

No, but your residency will affect where you file for divorce. You must file in the state where you are a current resident.

You can only be legally divorced if you get a legal divorce. It doesn't matter how long you have been separated. Separation only means you are no longer living together. Separation is not divorce. You are still married. What's keeping you from getting a legal divorce? I think you already know you are still legally married. Who is it you are trying to fool...or is it that still being married keeps you from being able to make the kind of commitment that the person you are now with probably wants. Nice safety net for you.. but not very mature. Get a divorce and get on with it.

Your spouse can contest the divorce at any point that they want to. They cannot force you to stay married to them so it only drags it out if they contest it.

The divorce can be filed by either person, provided they meet residency rules. In order to file for divorce in Texas or Virginia, either the petitioner or respondent must be domiciled in the state for at least six months, and reside in the county where the divorce is being filed for at least 90 days, before filing the divorce petition. A good example of that are Nevada Divorce Dude Ranches, where women stay long enough to gain residency, than file for divorce in that state. The first to file has jurisdiction over the case.

You could. It is against the law to apply for a marriage license and lie about still being married.

User Avatar

You're kidding, right? If you are still married, you can not legally marry another! No one cares if you have a divorce in progress or not. It's like being pregnant; you are either married (can't legally marry another) or you or divorced. There is no in between.

He married a woman named Juanita Vanoy from Chicago. He was 26 and she was 30. They met in 1984 through a mutual friend and six months later began dating. They divorced in December of 2006 after being separated earlier that year as well as discussions of divorce in 2002.

Leave him. He does not plan on getting a divorce and being with you and you only.

You must wait 6 months from service of the Summons and Petition for Divorce in California before your Divorce can be Final.You can, however, bifurcate your action.This means you can divide your divorce action into two parts.One part involves resolving all of the issues other than the "status" of being divorced, i.e. custody, support, division of assets etc. You can finish this part of your divorce as soon as you can resolve your issues. There is no time limit.The second part of your divorce is resolving the status of being divorced and restoring your status to a single person. You have to wait the 6 months for this part of your divorce.

You can file for divorce in the state in which you were married or the states in which you and your soon to be ex-spouse are currently residents. I would suggest that you file in the state in which you currently reside so that you can save yourself the time and trouble of traveling to Washington. However, you need to make sure you meet the residency time requirement before being able to do so. This can range from 6 months to 1 year.

You must either have a finalized divorce from the person you are already married to, or risk being charged with bigamy (and most likely convicted).

If you are divorced, you're divorced wherever you go. Same as being married, only opposite.

Some of California's divorce laws include at least one of the parties being a legal resident of California for 6 months or more. Counseling may be ordered if minor children are involved.

ANSWER:There are some married men that do, but not all. Lets talk about who does and why, realizing the mistakes that he did, and finding out that he had to loose her to know that his ex is the one. Lots of married men that end up being divorce do regret what they did..

In the US... Assuming you're talking about two people married to each other, no, one can't still be married and the other be divorced. They're either both married to each other or both divorced from each other. It is possible that a divorce was granted without one party being aware of it, if they were unable to locate that person to serve notice of the divorce, in which case they do a divorce by publication (publish a legal notice in the newspaper).
