Q: I Was Served A Summons From My Husband By Mail Regarding Our Divorce

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: February 1, 2020

Q: My husband served me this summons for a Divorce. He is currently incarcerated in the state of California in Tehachapi Kern county. Before he was incarcerated we were living together and decided to marry. All these years he has been there I have been in contact with him and traveled back and forth. I currently reside in New York with my mother due to my financial situation . Currently my husband is seeing someone else, another women which I have proof of and for the past 6 months has not contacted me. He wants the divorce and in the summons it states he will be looking for future determination the issue of support. I have not yet responded but will. I’m confused. I want him to pay me support in the future when he gets out or however it may work and I refuse to pay him. Can you advise me on this issue before I respond?

A: If there’s a divorce pending in California, then you’d need to consult a California attorney to know how best to proceed on that case. You may have a basis to file for divorce in NY, however. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
