Hello,

 

I am the JustAnswer expert that will be helping you today. I am a lawyer with 25 years experience. Although I am not your attorney, I hope that I can give you helpful legal information.

 

Thank you for your service to our country.

 

You may file for divorce in any state where either you or your husband have resided for the prior 6 months or the state in which you are currently stationed. Therefore you may file an either Texas or Indiana.

I'm heading to Kansas on pass from the 26th of june to the 30th, would i just go to the clerks office to file and if so would i need to appear for court or do they just takeit from there? Since ill be over sea's i won't have my phone nor be able to return home for court, so would my father be able to sit in for me since he has power of attorney??

Unfortunately you will need to be present for court appearance or you will have to retain legal counsel to appear in your stead. Your father can not sit in for you with the power of attorney unless he is an attorney himself.

Would getting an anullment be optional? We were married May 10th this year....?
Lawyer: Ellen, Lawyer, Consultant replied 8 years ago

Hello,

 

 

Unfortunately annulments are not based upon the time that you are married.

 

Grounds for annulment include bigamy, legally incapacity to marry based upon age or mental illness, intent to defraud some other person, business, or government agency or failure to consummate the marriage.

 

If you have not met one of these grounds, you will need to file for divorce

Wow....so would you suggest i wait till i get back from the deployment to file for divorce since i won't be able to appear in court due to the deployment??
Lawyer: Ellen, Lawyer, Consultant replied 8 years ago
You will either need to file on your return from deployment or retain legal counsel to represent you

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
