I've been in this group way too much this week lol
ok. so my stbx waited a year to answer my divorce and now my default won't be granted. He asked that my divorce be dismissed b/c I filed in the wrong county. I didn't file in the wrong county - he's an idiot. But here's the deal. When we separated I moved across state lines from tn to al. This hasn't been issue because he told me to move here and hasn't complained about me being here. We currently meet half way every other weekend. My lawyer is saying we can continue on our path in tn and head to mediation and trial. Or I can take his dismissal and refile in alabama. Alabama is a no-fault state. they seem to not really give a damn why you are getting a divorce or what you did while you were married. If we refile down here he'll have to come to me. No more meeting half way, he can come pick up his son from my front door. My lawyer seems to think that I will have a better chance of getting what I want in AL vs TN, but we'd be starting over from scratch.
I'm currently pregnant and have been living with my s/o since oct. I just want a divorce so we can get married and start moving forward. my ex is trying to use my pregnancy against me, and even though my lawyer says repeatedly that it won't affect anything I'm still scared it will. I don't know what to do. Keep moving foward in TN or make the bastard come to me in alabama?
