Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered
Q. Can i move states before filing a divorce when children are involved?
A: You are allowed to move before you file for divorce even without your husband's consent but the issue will be that your husband can then file for divorce once you have moved and ask for the children to be returned. If your husband is in agreement for you to move out of state make sure to get it in writing as this will assist you if he tries to raise any issues once you move. In addition, if you do move, the state that you move to would not get jurisdiction to address any of the issues until you have lived there for at least 6 months.
Q. My husband lives out of state. I want a divorce. But I know he will not sign the papers. No children or joint assets.
A: You can file for divorce without your husband's agreement but you need to determine where the case should be filed. To determine where to file the case you need to look at where the parties currently live, how long they have lived there, and what each persons contacts are with each state. I would recommend contacting our office and scheduling an appointment to assist you with your case and determine the proper place to file the divorce.
Q. seperated more than 2 years and she lives in Puerto Rico me in Floridacan we automatically be divorce
A: How long you have been separated does not have any bearing on whether you can get divorced. Florida is a no fault state and your can get divorced whether you were still together or separated for 1 day. You do need to have an attorney assist you with determining where the divorce should be filed being that your wife does not live in Florida.
