Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

One of the biggest issues in a divorce is where to file, and having a person who is in the military can complicate that a bit. How long has your spouse been in Texas? How long have you lived in Idaho? Did your spouse ever live in Idaho, or were they previously stationed there? What state was your spouse a resident of before joining the military?

Also, annulment is a specific legal proceeding that requires special grounds. What is your reason for seeking an annulment?
