Chicago, IL asked in Divorce for Illinois

Q: How do I find out if I am still legally married in another state

The divorce was filed in 2015, my ex's attorney never contacted me about mediation or anything else like he said he would. I no longer live in Oklahoma and haven't for years. How can I get this ugly situation gone for good or is it already and I just didn't know?

A: If the Clerk of the Court in the Oklahoma County where the divorce was filed has a website, use it to check on the status of the case. If you can't find a website, call the Clerk of the Court in the Oklahoma county where the divorce was filed and ask them how to find out.
