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: 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. 

Q: Can my wife get half of all my assets even though she committed bigamy ?

A: She may be able to claim up to 50% of assets which accrued value during the marriage. The Judge can consider the bigamy as well as the length of separation as impacting the percentage she gets.
