Yesterday’s blog regarding not getting re-married on the same day as your divorce inspired some additional excellent advice…
Do NOT set your Wedding Date before the divorce is FINAL.
Obviously, you cannot get re-married if you have a pending divorce. However, you should not set the date to marry your one, true beloved, counting on the divorce to go through from your demented, soon-to-be-ex on time, every time.
Divorce is not Amazon Prime. There is no guaranty that it will be there with next day shipping. In fact, routinely, something occurs to delay the process. A signature page was left blank or someone forgot to notarize all of the documents. Sometimes the Court is not available on day 61 to enter it and sometimes people change their minds.
Matthew Thompson is a Mississippi divorce attorney and advises you to wait until the divorce is final before setting the date for wedded bliss.
