Q: it's been over a year since my husband filed for divorce I was wondering if the divorce papers expire
Nothing has happened in our case since December 13th of last year and all we did was make our first appearance we are legally still married I just need to know if the papers expire or what it's been over a year with nothing done
A: The case hangs on until the parties or the court take an action to dismiss the case. Some courts clean up their dockets regularly, others not at all.
A: No, it will just hang out there waiting for one of the parties to file something to get it moving again. The real question, do you want to move the divorce forward? If you do, and you are in Tulsa or one of the surrounding counties, give us a call at 918-884-7791...Boeheim Freeman Law.
