Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello - Thank you for contacting JustAnswer. My name is Michael; I look forward to helping you with your legal problem today.
Yes. Once you file for divorce, the court will order that she not leave until the divorce is finalized.
How can that be enforced?
I mean she already has a ticket, and doesn't plan on ever returning to the United States
So even with a court order I am afraid she would just skip out anyway
If you alert the Court to this, they may order that she surrender her passport.
When you speak to your divorce attorney, simply alert him to this fact so he can take the necessary steps to keep her grounded.
Alright, I have one other question
Her flight is only 21 days away
What are the chances that I can get this done in time
It is going to be difficult. You'll need to consult an attorney, get the complaint filed, and get her served.
I would speak to an attorney tomorrow.
I will most certainly do that tomorrow.
I hope it works out.
It would be terrible if she just left.
It won't, unfortunately
No matter what she does it will damage how our son views her
and he doesn't deserve it
but thank you, XXXXX XXXXX answered my questions very well
