Divorce Hearing


#1

Dear blondie:

Greetings. First, I honestly have never thought about how a third party, meaning not the husband or wife, would contest a divorce. Why do you want to do this?

Because the woman is my husband’s mistress.

Dear Blondie:

Greetings. I think the correct way to do this is to make a Motion to Intervene in the action.

Now, I want to let you know that in the event you end up in court with your spouse, calling this mistress to testify and proving that she committed perjury to get her divorce would be a great day for you in court.

Also, the mistress will have to live knowing that her ex can always dispute the divorce at any time in the future, and therefore ruin any other marriage that she gets herself into.

Nevertheless, I think your option is a Motion to Intervene. Thank you.

If 2 parties separate and then they resume living together (albeit at separate ends of the house) but they intend to go to court and say that they have met the one year separation requirement, what can a third party do to dispute that? Should the 3rd party send a sworn affidavit to the court prior to the divorce hearing stating that they resumed cohabitation at least 6 months before the hearing date? We could get several people to attest to the fact that they are living under the same roof. Or do you just go up to the courthouse and wait for the case to be called. It doesn’t seem to me that the judge would be too crazy about someone that’s not a lawyer standing up in the courtroom and saying they object. Thanks for your reply.
