If the date of separation is stated as one week after marriage, can it pose problems later as in presenting incorrect facts to court? Can the husband back out later saying the date is wrong?
Dont think so deep about it, the court will not go into the veracity of your pleadings. You may state that you have been living separately immediately after marriage and for mutual consent divorce, you do not have to even state the reason for divorce, just incompatibility will be sufficient to seek divorce.
My lawyer advises talking to my husband's lawyer, but he won't give his lawyer's details. She is recommending sending a legal notice, I am not sure how that will help. Can you advise?
Instead of making simple things into a complicated one by involving the lawyers to solve this issue, you may better arrange to talk to him directly and decide about it by a direct dealing with him and afterwards engage your lawyer to file the formal papers for mutual consent divorce if has consented to it.
The marriage was consummated and therefore, I was informed, annulment is not possible. The unfortunate part is our law doesn't acknowledge that gay men can perform with women. He has agreed for mutual consent and lawyers are recommending this option.
Thus the suggestion or mutual consent divorce shall be the best option because in contest divorce on this ground, it will be very hard to prove his nature namely 'Gay'. Dont create a fuss on it, better terminate your married life as early as possible if you want to sigh a relief as well as proceed with a better life in the future.
I am not interested in fighting cases for years and want to move on with life. But it also angers me that our legal system doesn't offer much help to women in my position. I am not looking for financial settlement, another reason why lawyers are discouraging litigation. But is there no way to attain justice in this case?
You can very well file a contested divorce case on the grounds that he is gay and it will not be possible to continue the married life with such person. But the burden of proof will lie on you to prove it and you may not technical get support to establish your pleadings. So think about it properly and take a wise decision at a right time instead of harping over it.
Not just the guy but his parents have planned this. For one year before the wedding I met his parents frequently and they painted a completely different picture. I feel horrible at the way I have been cheated.
The parents may claim innocence about this and also they may still try to defend their son, so you may not get any justice from them.
