The validity of the Texas common law marriage would have to be established first, before a divorce could be granted by the Arizona court.
(Only a minority of states allow common law marriages, among them are Colorado, Utah, Texas, Montana, and Kansas.) If the couple has cohabitated in Arizona for years while holding themselves out to be man and wife, they still aren’t legally married under Arizona law.
CSS PLAY is a partnership between myself and my wife.
My name is Stuart Nicholls, but known to everyone as just Stu.
It can be very complicated, as I found out when I took my first steps down this path.
CSS PLAY, by the way, is now listed on the w3website.
Forcing someone to marry under threat of serious physical harm (or domestic violence) is wholly inconsistent with voluntary consent.
An insane, mentally ill, or substantially mentally challenged individual may lack the legal capacity necessary to enter into a marriage contract.
