Q: I'm 14 weeks pregnant and my husband wants a divorce . In the state of TN can we get a divorce since I'm pregnant?
If so what do I have to do?
A: yes, there is no prohibition to getting a divorce while pregnant. However, it does make calculating the child support more difficult. there is a 90 day waiting period when there is a minor child of the marriage, so it will take a least that long. I would suggest waiting until the child is born to finalize the divorce, but you can start the process while you are pregnant.
A: The short answer is yes. I would suggest that you consult with a divorce lawyer. It is way too complicated to discuss on this forum.
