The same as they would be if the person were not an inmate. State laws govern divorce issues such as property division, custody, child support, spousal maintenance and so forth. If you no longer think the marriage is sustainable, you can file for divorce whether or not your spouse is in prison.

If you file , the filing fee is based on your income. If you are broke, you can file for a fee waiver.

The spouse of an incarcerated husband has all rights over their property. This is only if the two people are legally married.
The spouse cannot refuse visitation, however the courts can.
Only if he finds a lawyer that will do it for free.

Thanks Mackey for extending on my post. I did mean that this person could go see a lawyer and go through the natural process which includes property rights, etc. I was slow on the up-take. LOL Marcy Yes you can, but it's advisable to see a lawyer on this. Since your spouse is incarcerated there in no need for his permission to get a divorce and the courts are quite lenient in these types of cases. Marcy * No. In the U.S. both parties of a dissolution of marriage must be notified of the action or a reasonable attempt for notification made, before the divorce is granted. Even a person who is incarcerated may have legal rights to marital property. The person wishing to file the divorce can do so in the city or county court of their residence. The filing spouse must inform the court of the whereabouts of the incarcerated spouse and he or she must be served dissolution papers and given the amount of response time allowed by the laws of the state in which the dissolution petition is filed or the state in which the marriage took place, whichever is the longest. If the incarcerated spouse does not respond accordingly either in acceptance or opposition to the dissolution terms, the divorce will be granted to the petitioner on the grounds of default.
it's usually not very hard. depending on when the person is getting out. but, as with normal divorces, sometimes the spouse refuses to sign the divorce papers.
How do I find hidden money my spouse put in a annuity or trust?
There will always be fights, unknown phone calls coming , and threats of filing for divorce.
He can refuse, but that will not prevent the requesting spouse receiving a divorce under the default laws.
Generally speaking, when one spouse files for bankruptcy, the non-filing spouse should not be effected by this because they are only filing as to their individual debts. They are still obligated to the joint debts they share with you. Additionally, if you are in the process of a divorce the fact that one has filed for bankruptcy does not extinguish his duties to pay the divorce settlement, child support, alimony, etc.
The procedure is the same as if the person were not imprisoned. The petitioning spouse files in the court of venue in the county where he or she is a resident.
A person cannot be denied a divorce, but the terms of the divorce can be contested which sometimes leads to a long and lengthy court battle. When a spouse is served with a dissolution of marriage summons and fails to respond the spouse seeking the divorce may petition the court for a motion of default. A judge will review the petition to be certain everything is in order, the judge may also choose to interview the filing spouse. After the judge is satisfied that proper procedures have been followed the divorce will be granted by default. The non-responsive spouse will be notified that the divorce has been granted and that they have forfeited their legal rights to contest any of the terms that were included in the original dissolution of marriage petition. These procedures apply whether a spouse is incarcerated, residing in another state or living outside the country. Be advised, a divorce granted by default does not relieve a spouse of the obligation of child support, that is a different issue.
The right to ownership of marital property as allowed under the laws of the state where the couple last resided or were married; the legally retaining of parental rights until/unless a court rules otherwise and the right to obtain a divorce.

You will be required by the court to publish a notice of the divorce filing in the paper. For more information you should visit your local family court.
You need to file a divorce in your state court. Only a court decree can legally dissolve a marriage in the US. You will be required to notify your spouse of the filing.
Yes, a spouse would have to pay back Social Security benefits received for a spouse who was incarcerated.
The procedure for divorcing an incarcerated spouse is the same as it would be if said spouse were not imprisoned. That being the case, the expense depends upon who the filing spouse chooses to be their attorney. There are no provisions for state assistance or a discount in legal fees based on a spouse being incarcerated. There are legal organizations that can assist in the dissolution of marriage process based on what the petitioner can afford.
You have to be served with divorce papers. Unless you are in hiding, you should be visited by a server if a divorce is in the works. Or, yu could just ask your spouse if he is filing?
