Internet Divorce Not Worth The Paper It's Printed On

from the oops dept

We’ve had a couple of stories about using the internet to get a divorce, but it seems to be leading to some very questionable operations. A man who (without speaking to his wife about it) filed for a divorce online has been told that he didn’t really get a divorce and is now married to two women. Of course, this “internet divorce” seems a bit different then ones we’ve spoken about in the past. Those are really just providing all the right documentation needed for you to submit through the regular process. This one was a “Mexican internet divorce” where you file the forms on some website in Mexico and they announce you’re divorced. It should be pretty obvious to anyone that this is a sham, but the guy still paid $1,500, partly because he thought he could “sneak this by” his wife.
