For Five star Law- I am thinking about divorcing my husband. Can he prevent me from divorcing him?


Good Morning and thank you for directing your question to me.

Your Question - I am thinking about divorcing my husband. Can he prevent me from divorcing him?

My Answer - No, he can not prevent you from divorcing him

Explanation - The consent of your spouse is not required in order to obtain a divorce. Consent is required only for an uncontested divorce where the property settlement is agreed upon. You may file a petition for dissolution of marriage regardless of your husbands consent.

I would be glad to respond to any related follow-up questions that you may have.
