Good morning. If you are going through with the divorce, why does he want 6 months of counseling? Would this be a condition to and be the divorce proceeds, to try and save the marriage? Are you both sharing an attorney?
We are not sharing an attorney. He does not want the divorce and has asked that I put the divorce on hold for six months and attend two sessions a week with a christian counselor. After the 6 months if I still feel the same way he will give me his 50% of the business and sign the divorce papers and proceed with the divorce. My question is ...could that truly be a legal binding contract.
He has some mental issues. Could he say at the end of the six months that he was mentally incompetent when he signed it? That is my biggest concern. Do you practice law in Texas?
Are you saying that the information you provided would apply to Texas law?
