I am screwed if she doesn't sign right?
yep unless you move to Utah....lol.
there has been a separation for 7 yrs and a lawyer fees involved - what was the lawyer paid to do and where is the proof of divorce..??
you can't just assume that it was taken care of....
how long were they married..? sounds lengthy given even the time for separation.
at the time they separated was there a separartion agreement that divided the assests or properties..?
his stbx may have been nice and you may not be the cause but there appears to be a lot of unresolved issues going on here......she sounds very angry at your impending marriage and may do everything possible to see that it does not take place in June.
you need to talk to this lawyer and find out exactly what he was doing with the money that was supposed to pay for a divorce.....
it takes 2 people to marry and 1 person to divorce, proceedings may be stretched out over time but the divorce will occur regardless.
Life is a long lesson in humility.
