Q: 

Husband filed for divorce...devastated I dont think I can make it through this?

A:  Wow, you actually had some really nice people answer your question. I am so glad no one has been cruel to you like they are sometimes. I am so sorry that he did this to you...that he had the emotional affairs and that he has decided to call it quits without even giving this relationship a second chance. He is the one that drove it in the ditch, yet he has YOU blamed for kicking him out? That''s very unfair and it is not unlike someone who cheats like that to find ways to blame others for what ''they'' did. He doesn''t want to take responsibility because taking responsibility means that he might have to change something about himself. This tells me that you are better off without him even though you are hurting right now. I know he says that maybe someday you can remarry, but I find that...

Q: 

How to file for divorce?

A:  You ask whether one can file for divorce without a lawyer. The short answer is yes. However, I recommend finding a lawyer to take your case or at least review any work you do on your own. Almost every court provides a set of ''pro se'' or do-it-yourself forms for common situations such as divorce. They will often be right on your Court''s website. If you need help preparing the documents needed by the Court or would like to fine a lawyer to take your case, you can always look to your county Bar Association''s lawyer Referral Service. Nearly every bar has one. I hope this information...

Q: 

Where do I file for divorce?

A:  In Tennessee, the grounds for divorce must have occurred in Tennessee, or at least one of the spouses must have been a resident of Tennessee for 6 months before filing for divorce. The divorce is filed in the county in which both spouses lived at the time of their separation, the county in which the defendant lives if he or she is a resident of Tennessee, or the county in which the plaintiff lives if the defendant is a non-resident of Tennessee. Thus, Woman B may file for divorce in the county in which she resides if residing in Tennessee for 6...

Q: 

When filing for divorce, should someone consult a lawyer?

A:  You can always try to do it yourself--many people do. They do not, of course, know what they don''t know. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings-- but if there are kids a judgment is the beginning NOT the end of your divorce. You probably would not try to take your own appendix out... I strongly recommend you google collaborative divorce and mediation for your jurisdiction and at least get a consult. You need this must have membership so you can have access to attorneys without having to pull your wallet out every time!!!!!!!!!!!! www.prepaidlegal.com/hub/fjturk Every state is different as it matters to how a divorce is filed but its always a good idea to seek legal counsel from an...

Q: 

Can i lose my PR if i file for divorce now?

A:  If you have been granted PR, you will not lose it by divorcing your husband unless he can satisfy DIAC that you married him fraudulently just to get a visa and that he was completely unaware that you had done so. It would be very difficult for him to do so if you lived together as a married couple from the time of your marriage until you were granted PR. He won''t be able to make you lose your PR just by saying that you were a bad wife....

Q: 

Do I Have to file a divorce?

A:  I think you are big time unwise to let wife run off with your kids to a new location--its like giving free ammunition to your enemy. I think youwant to seek counsel like darn quick and get your kids back under your roof--if it means tracking them down and go grab them and get a TRO If wife wantws to run off to Maine and bounce the sheets with lobsterman, so be it--but get kids under your roof. I'm not in TX nor am I an attorney--I thought TROs tended to be to prevent something, were relatively short term , and tended to be to protect against violence--if Mom merely skipped out with kids and no violence a TRO may be wrong tool to force kids back. You need to review options/game plan with TX counsel.   To use wrong tool may not save money or get results! No. And as...

Q: 

Can I file for divorce while in U.S. on B-2?

A:  Yes, you can file for divorce if you are in the US as a visitor and if you comply with the rules for filing for divorce in the state where you are seeking the divorce. Your spouse in the Philippines will need to be notified of the process, etc. so everything will have to be done by the rules of the state where you are going through the divorce . However, please note that your B-2 extension is not guaranteed to be granted just because you are going through a divorce proceeding....

Q: 

Filing for divorce, need it now!

A:  Unless the state has terminated your parental rights, you have children and you likely will have financial obligations towards them, irrespective of who has custody. I would file as having children. "My children are in state custody,..." Why are the children in the state's custody instead of with you the other biological parent? The fact that the children are in the state's custody should not have any impact on you filing for divorce. You have children unless your rights have been terminated by the courts so that's the only answer to your question. Yes you can file for divorce while your children are in state custody. Unless your rights have been terminated...
