Can I still divorce him if he refused to accept divorce papers?
In today’s episode, we discuss the options a person has if their spouse refuses to accept divorce papers.
I married my husband at Sheria House in 2006. However, almost immediately after, he denied me conjugal rights and instead looked for it elsewhere. Eventually, we had a big fight and he moved out in 2008.
Two years later, I filed for divorce proceedings but my husband kept dodging the person trying to serve him. I tried to follow up but my advocate kept taking me round and round until I gave up. I left it and continued living my life. I have recently met someone and he proposed to marry me and I said yes. I haven’t told him yet about my first husband and I want to see if I can get a quickie divorce.
I got someone to check my divorce file, and she told me that that the case had been called for reactivation in 2015. Does that mean I am now divorced?
