NC vs. TX - Who knows the law?


#1

Dear iwannaknow:

Greetings. Clearly NC does not have jurisdiction over property distribution and children. File in Texas and make sure that your attorney disputes the jurisdiction IMMEDIATELY - as this must be raised in a timely manner.

What county are you in?

After 23 years of marriage, my husband became a truck driver and left me for another woman and moved back to his home state of NC and I am a native of TX. We were married in TX and lived our married life in TX and own property in TX, but yet, he filed for divorce in NC which I’ll never understand why. How can NC has jurisidiction over TX?? He wanted an absolute divorce, but because of property issues and a minor child, I’m contesting it. I hired an attorney in NC who does not contact me often and his attorney will not accept or return my phone calls. I want the divorce now! How long can a divorce case remain open? Who out there knows NC law?? It’s been over a year and there has been no hearing - no court dates - no nothing!! I don’t know how to contact my husband and he doesn’t contact me. Can I dismiss the case in NC and file here in Texas?? What rights do I have as a defendant??
