Divorce from bed and board


If you reconciled for a period of a year then the facts in the previous action are no longer relevant. The attorney should have done a new action. You should file an Answer and deny any allegations that are not true.

last year my wife had an attorny to draw up papers fora divorce from bed and board. It stated facts that I have constructively abandoned her… spends nights out…gave her a veneral disease…all which was fabricated not true…I spoke with my wife and asked her to stop this action and demand that we get christian marriage counseling…she did.
Since that time we have been very much intimate and growing in our relationship. At times I asked her about her lawyer and the divorce from bed and board matter…she would tell me that her lawyer stopped the actions of which I asked for clarity and was concerned because I thought she should do something or have something more concrete stating this matter is dismissed. Last week we found out that we both had a STD and both of us are admitting that neither are at fault of cheating! This week she told me she filed for divorce and I said how and why ? Then the sheriff came to my house and she said he was asking for me while I was gone… Come to find out she had her 17 year old Son sign and take the papers… I asked why ? she said that the officer said that as long as person is over 15 he can take them for me.! The papers which she showed me were the same ones that were drawn up last year that was on hold! I told her since then we had reconciled and worked thru any of our problems and were doing fine. How could here lawyer produce to be served the same papers which I never was served a year ago? I’m I considered served?
