Q: Can I get an annulment or divorce without my wife?

A: In theory, you can get a divorce or annulment, but the problem in your case will be where to serve her. You ultimately need to serve her with the court summons, so you may need to hire a P.I. in an effort to locate her. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce attorney for a full assessment. 

Q: Am I entitled to my spouse lawsuit settlement ?

A: If its a personal injury lawsuit, then the general rule is no - that's usually his separate property. That said, it may be raised as a factor in the distribution of other assets and/or maintenance. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce attorney for a full assessment. 

Q: How long does it take to receive a index number?

A: It's quick easy & quick to obtain an index number. So long as the filing papers were correctly filled out (which may be the problem), an index number can be obtained any day the courthouse is open. For more info, schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce Attorney. 

My husband left me in divorce 3 months after we married and I being 19 years old and since I don't know where he is, do you think I could divorce?

A: Yes, you can still divorce him. Ultimately if you can't find him, however, you may need to retain a private investigator to conduct a "diligent search." Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce attorney for a full assessment. 

Q: Is there a document that can be created to waive spouses rights to property when separated?

A: Yes, it's called a divorce settlement agreement. It's a document drawn up during the divorce process which resolves all outstanding issues between your spouse and you. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce attorney for a full assessment. 

Q: Will I qualify for Alimony in Divorce?

A: You would appear to qualify for alimony - the ultimate question will be how much & for how long. The other question will be what assets or property there is to divide. You're best advised to schedule a consult with a Bronx Alimony/Divorce Attorney for a full assessment. 

Q: How can I find out if my husband bought another house or have another baby ?or child support case?

A: Within a divorce case, one may serve the opposing side with disclosure requests. Among the disclosure requests (in your instance) would include a demand for records as to what happened to the money - as well as "interrogatories" asking for information/records on other property and/or other children.

Q: What does "DISMDAT" mean in the remarks section since my appearance date was pushed back/adjourned.

A: It's hard to say, as that's not an abbreviation which is clear. "Dism" usually means dismissed, but if your case has an adjourn date, that seems unlikely. When in doubt, you should call the clerk's office. Also feel free to call a Bronx Uncontested Divorce attorney for more info.
