OT: Oh by the way...
I was officially divorced as of a few days ago. I took me from December until now to get it all done. It was a complicated, frustrating/annoying experience. For awhile, I couldn't locate my ex husband to have him served...it would have been a nightmare if I hadn't located him etc.

In BC, there's a 31 day waiting period before it's really 100% official (in case my idiot ex wants to file something I guess.) Then it's a done deal.



On the day I got the news, I bought some yarn at Zellers...cause I know how to celebrate.

Good for You!
I think a good yarn indulgence is the best possible way to celebrate. Best wishes for a happy, yarn-filled future!

31 days - great. In North Carolina you have to be legally separated for a year before you can even file.

I couldn't afford to file when I still lived in North Carolina. Now that I can afford it in Iowa, I am not yet a resident. I have to wait until I have lived here one calendar year, and then once I file it will take 90 days. Why is it so easy to GET married and so difficult to get OUT of it. Something is messed up.

When my daughter was getting divorced, she had to wait 6 months here in FL after she moved back from Oregon. She couldn't file as soon as she wanted but had to wait till she had lived here 6 months. But when she was ready, she got a great lawyer. A lady was talking about her divorce at the ball park where my daughter was playing softball, her dad said go talk to her find out who her lawyer was, That lawyer walked all over he ex's lawyer. He was a new lawyer just setting up his office , first case . Her ex wanted credit for all the money he had paid toward support for his son only to the date of filing, daughter's lawyer wanted it to date of seperation. Judge gave it to date of seperation , his lack of support was very evident then. Daughter could have taken her ex for everything he had but Daughter didn't want to be vindicted, she just wanted a fair dirvorce.
