Q: What can I do if my spouse won’t sign the uncontested papers, so I can file them?

Can I still file without her signing, and if so what happens next?

Anna Aleksander
Anna Aleksander answered on Nov 18, 2019

You can file for divorce and she will have 20 days to file an answer. You may want to consult with legal counsel. If she refuses to co-operate you can still get divorced. You will have to properly serve her with the petition and a summons.

Q: Am asking for transfer of ownership of vehicle in divorce.

I am asking for title/ownership transfer in divorce. Right now am waiting for court approval to waive filing fee before process of divorce begins. I do not have in possession the title, only the vehicle. Is my husband able to legally sell this car before divorce is processed and/or finalized?

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Nov 11, 2019

Depends on whether the Court in your county enters a status quo order. I’d keep the vehicle in the garage or locked up when not in use until there’s is a resolution just to be safe.

The car is marital property regardless of whose name it is in. Father does not have standing to take a warrant against you. Keep the car, cut off all contact and proceed with divorce.

Q: So me and my husband have been seperated since 1999. I live in Ky. But he moved to Oklahoma and got remarried .

Does that make us automatically divorced or what ?? I am a single woman working 80/-100/hours a week to make ends meet I cannot afford to pay 500$ for a divorce.

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Oct 24, 2019

He cannot get remarried if he is still legally married to you. That makes his second marriage void and him a bigamist. You should spend the $500 and get rid of him forever.
