Ok they have filed in Maryland trying to get the moon plus, I have filed in Virginia and have a court date for the divorce, where they do not have one. If I get the divorce in Virginia before this is due, they cannot ask me those questions correct?
Yes you are correct although this is irregular and I suspect that if either court was aware of the pending case in the other jurisdiction, one or the other would be dismissed. If this does not occur, and you are able to obtain a final judgment (divorce decree) in Virginia, you should be fine as the Maryland case will become moot.
