Hello, I'm New!
I found your groups while doing an internet search for "free
divorce". Already Being a yahoo user made it easy to join. I would
like to post a question regarding something I want to do and it is
court related. I don't know if posting it in this message is the
best way to start out my membership here but what do I have to lose??
I'd like to affirm that I believe in the justice system and
acknowledge that it's a necessity. I'm in an area of my life where I
constantly think about "what's the meaning of life" And I admire the
fact that we in the USA are entitled to a "free" education. What I
get miffed about ALOT is the fact that knowledge is still being
withheld from our hungry minds unless we PAY dearly for
that "special" knowledge. I appreciate that we have fields of
profession and degrees are given to people who are really really
One of the strangest things imo is the fact that we go in front of a
judge and plea a case but depending on how swift our attorneys are
and how well they can remind the judge of what the law is....
determines if we are guilty or not.. LoL its nuts to me and I
think.. WoW that attorney really did well in convincing the judge
about whats legal and whats NOT. The kicker for ME is I believe that
daggone judge should be able to already know what the HALE is going
on and be able to tell the plaintiff where he is in default.
OOPS.... sorry! I seem a bit ranty (I am).
My circumstances are like this.
I had a baby in Jan 2002. Married the father in 2002. Father moved
from home Oct 2002. I looked at the "free divorce" application at
the website http://www.freedivorceforms.net/main.php
and I see a place at the top that says (your states info) Put your
state here. I have no idea where to get that info other than typing
in Kentucky.. which Im sure there must be more to it than that??
Also, I see a place where you are to type in a "statute" and I have
no idea where I should go to locate that info.
And finally.... the part of the divorce petition that says how many
children we had during this marriage.... well i'm confused on that
because we were NOT married when the child was born, However,
Paternity HAS been established through dna court testing. (he
insisted on the test as a means to prolong judgement on child
support) He and I have an acceptable relationship as friends at this
time. The only reason the courts were involved in the child support
thing in the first place is because i was on welfare checks for three
months. He has paid all of that money back to the state at this time
and I have gone to the child support attorney and withdrawn their
services. My husband recently had open heart surgery, his education
is minimal and his employment is odd jobs here and there. I admit
that's not the best choice of a mate in life but we were having fun
and loved each other in a special way, then.
The way it stands right now is we are exercising what we call a joint
custody and the child stays with me (most of the time) and stays with
Husband (at other times).
I'm guessing that a filing fee for the court clerk is pretty hefty
but if i could do most of the paperwork I think I could actually
budget a divorce.
I appreciate some advice on this and I'm sorry this post is soooooooo
