Customer Question
Hello, I have completed...

Hello, I have completed annulment forms signed by myself and my husband that are notarized, but are dated 3/17/2017. My question, can I still file? In 2 years time, my husband left me, each time he rented a place for himself to live.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

TEXAS

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

The forms were completed and notarized in March, 2017. I did not file them at that time, we decided to date, still did not work out. The forms are in my possession.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, not at this time.

What as the basis for the annulment back then?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Both my husband and I are recovering alcoholics, I am sober 28 years, he 4 years. My husband seems to be mentally unstable; 5 times out of a 2 year marriage he would leave out of the blue, pay rent and deposit on an apartment for himself. We would be separated for several months then ask if we could reunite. after the last separation, I said, "no more" Can I file the signed, notarized annulment papers completed March 17, 2017? We have no children together, we have no real property, we lived in my home.
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 4 months ago

You certainly *can* file the annulment papers but given that you guys apparently reconciled after the annulment there's a pretty high probability that it will be denied and you'll be told to file a divorce petition (Complaint).

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!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
