Post Divorce

Divorce is not a problem while incarcarated. If you would give a little more information on your friends location (state, county) I could probably guide you to most of the information that he would need . You need not post his information her in an open fourm. You cn get a hold of me through PM.

Exclamation Michigan Divorce Needed From WV Prison

I hope this gets looked at amongst the other hundreds of threads, but I wanted to know if anyone can provide me with information on how my friend can get a divorce in Michigan even though he is at Beckley in West Virginia. I have not had any luck on initiating this process and i don't want to get in over my head in financial debt for something that can be done at minimal cost. Please can anyone help?

Default Divorce and distribution of property

My cousin is in a CA prison. His wife just informed him that she wants a divorce and wants to sell their house and move out of state. They currently own a house is San Diego and it has appreciated significantly. She currently has a Durable Power of Attorney, but I'm advising my cousin to get it revoked. How can my cousin make sure that he gets his fair share of the equity? Also, would it be cheaper if my cousin filed for the divorce and signed a fee waiver? Lastly, if he filed for divorce, could he somehow get the court involved to oversee the real estate distribution of funds?

I'm also selling my house in California. Since he is being sentenced to prison he will not be able to stop me, benefit from anything we owned together or have any say so about what I make off the closing. My lawyer tells me they have no rights in prison...just telling what I have learned thru my ordeal. sokie

He is a friend of a friend, but i thought i'd atleast try to help him out some. he is in Alabama Donaldson ( west jefferson) prison.

If the person files for fee waiver due to their indgent status it will cost them nothing. This status will be verifyed trough the prison (if he has big money on his books he may not be granted this status) Most inmates are considerated indgent .

Plainviewgirl... The Internet Legal Resource Guide has some sample divorce forms that you may be able to use. Your best bet would be to go to the Clerk of Court in the county where the divorce would be filed and see if they have a forms packet. Often times the local clerk will have a packet that you can make copie of and then just fill in the forms. I am not sure what Texas law is, but here in Tennessee, if one spouse's whereabouts are unknown, the spouse filing for the divorce just has to run an ad in the newspaper notifying that they want a divorce and if nobody responds to it, then the divorce goes through, generally in favor of the person filing and it is over with. The Clerk of the local court is your best source for information, though.

Hi,
My name is Carrie and my husband is in jail for a sexual offence in Louisiana. I want a divorce and live in Florida. He said he thought it would be easier for him to file since he is in there. I thought due to the nature of his crime that might also make it easier. Any info would help.

Thanks

Cariree:

It might be eaiser for you to file in Florida , because you could get a default of judgement much eaiser. Do you and you husband have children between you. If you would rather discuss this manner in private PM (private message) me and I will show how this would work in FLorida for you.

My wife is Hobby and one of her friends in there has been trying to get a divorce for quite sometime now. Falls County, where Hobby is located, has decided that all of the inmates in there are "involuntary residents" of the county unless they were a legal resident of that county at the time of their arrest and incarceration. She lived in Travis County at the time and Travis is claiming that she is not a resident of their county and they do not have jurisdiction either. She finally just gave up and decided to wait until she gets out of prison to file for her divorce. It just depends on what county your friend is incarcerated in. For the most part they can file for their divorce themselves and it goes very simply. Other counties refuse to do it. You can get the paperwork online that he need from many different sources. He might have to have a proxy attend the court hearing for him, but is not a big deal.

All states have different procedures for filing for a divorce - keep in mind that it's no different whether someone is in prison or not. The best way to get the information you need is for your inmate to contact the clerk's office of the county they are in and request the paperwork and procedures. Some states will allow an inmate to file in forma pauperis (for free) while others do not.

Does anyone know how much it costs for someone to file for divorce while they are in prison. is it cheaper for them to file other than us.

Most states a inmate can waive the fees if he doesn't have the funds on his books. Like I said most not all
Same thing applies to anyone if they don't have he funds to pay the file fees For people on the outside they can contact legal aid for free assistance on file for a divorce There are plenty of avenues to get a divorce especally uncontested divorce
