    A good friend of mine who was born down in Mexico had this to say about love. You know ese, they should keep all of the boy cows in one pen and all the girl cows in an another one, until they are like you know thirty years old! One of the great philosophers of any time or place.

    Video divorce. Don't even have to sit near her. Wish that technology had existed for my first marriage. I would have got drunk and disorderly just to end it without a face to face. Congrats. Hope the rest of your life is good.

    During the many years I was captain of a local pub's softball team, I had to plan my lineup after checking out the county's jail-booking log site. Once I had four players in there, and had to find most of an infield in a few hours. Thereafter, only two of these was-busy-elsewhere regular players could drive to games or practices.

    So when you see a burly guy in a town championship t-shirt who's riding a bike a lot, it may not be 'cause he's carbon-conscious.....

    Now that is a good divorce story.

    Fortunately for you, she was not too drunk to litigate or testify.

    That would be a good redneck thing, "Too drunk to testify." :)

    Let me tell you a story about some other poor bastage that I saw unfold in open court a couple of weeks ago.

    I was present on a motions hearings calendar for civil matters, and unfortunately, this particular judge commingles domestic/divorce/family law matters with other civil matters. It is "unfortunate" because those cases are usually petty an acrimonious and involve a lot of pro se parties, and they really test the patience of judges and wear them out by the time I get up to argue my issues. I hate having to follow them because the judge is usually worn out with people by that time.

    I was sitting with my client waiting my turn when a couple were called for hearing in front of us. It was apparently a "final" hearing on a divorce petition and both the man and woman were pro se (unrepresented by counsel). They had been separated a while and the divorce had been going on some time. The judge proceeded with the necessary colloquy for a final divorce, and then asked the woman a mandatory question. That question was, "Are you pregnant?" Her answer? "Yes, I just found out yesterday." The husband turned and looked at with a great deal of surprise and disappointment.

    The judge informed her that he could not grant here a divorce. She replied something to the effect that, "But it's not his, so that should not be a problem." The judge then informed them that it is a problem for them both because the law does not favor children being born into bastardy.

    So now that poor joker is going to have to sit and wait 9 months and then prove that he is not the father in order to get rid of her. Theoretically, he is responsible for her in all customary ways until divorced.

    Been in your shoes once. Hope it never happens again. Divorces are never pretty, which seems incongruous to the wedding day when everyone and everything is pretty.

    What does a marriage license cost nowadays? Fifteen, twenty bucks? I don’t even know. Anyway, I had this theory many years ago that a marriage license should cost between 2-3 grand, and a divorce should be 10-15 bucks. It might make people think twice about swallowing the old anchor.

    Best of luck to ya!

    The odd thing is, I don't remember her wearing anything like that. It seemed like she was in her plain clothes, but I was pretty stunned by the situation, so I may have just overlooked it... lol

    Same thing in Florida, your child or not. That was one of the first things I asked my now ex before I even sent her the papers to sign, "You're not pregnant, are you?"

    FWIW, only one party needs to be in court.

    I'm surprised she didn't ask you to post bond.

    In this state, one of the qualifications for a simplified dissolution of marriage is that you both have to appear in court. This is what it says on the petition form.

    "You and your spouse are both willing to go to the final hearing (at the same time).

    If you do not meet the criteria above, you must file a regular petition for dissolution of

    Your ex was willing, it's just that the sheriff's department department wasn't going to let her. I'm no expert in legal matters, but I assume there's a rule that prisoners in County be allowed to make court appearances by video conference and the judge in your case accepted it as fulfilling the requirement.

    I know. You could have done a regular petition. Works the same way.
