Thank you for your reply and I am sorry if my choice of words has led to confusion. I’ll try to be more clear in my description of the issue I’m inquiring about. To reiterate, the Complaint for Absolute Divorce was dated in handwriting and signed for the (presumably) correct date, a year and a day after our separation. That seems totally fine.
However, looking on down to the bottom of the page 2 of the complaint in the “Verification” section of the document… My stbx’s signature is there as plaintiff, along with both the stamp and signature of his attorney/Notary Public (one and the same) , and that is dated in handwriting for a different, Too Early date than the rest of the form. In other words, according to the, in quotes, logic, of document, the whole Complaint was notarized ten days before it was drafted and signed.
On looking back over the documents I received, it occurs to me that that that last page of the Complaint is in a different type print, than the rest and is also NOT stamped with the :
"FILED 2012 July 20 … date, and isn’t stamped with the Court Case file number, and none of the documents bear a signature or stamp of whom they were filed by.
I am now concerned that this 3rd page of the complaint is NOT the original as filed. !!! It makes me wonder just what is on the 3rd page of the Complaint that actually WAS filed.
