If there is bias present in the judge’s decision making there could be a conflict of interest in which the judge ‘s decisions... Read more »

The case might have been dismissed if the husband never served the wife or did not serve the wife properly. The wife can file for divorce if the case was dismissed. If the husband's case was not dismissed and is still active then the court might reject the wife's filing.
My name on the marriage license is Frazier however I married an Ubiera and changed my name accordingly after getting married. We got divorced and the papers refer to me as Frazier but my last name is Ubiera. All my identification etc is Ubiera. Am I still divorced or no.
answered on Mar 8, 2018

If you do not have children together there is no waiting period. If you do have children together then you may separate at any time, but cannot be granted a divorce until the one year period has passed.
