Good for the judge. Let these two stinking bull-dykes go back to California and quit wasting this judge's time.

That goddam "Mississippi Wall" agin!

And, the Judge just violated the Full Faith and Credit clause of the US Constitution, which he swore to uphold and defend in it's entirety when he took his seat on the Bench.

Anyone wanna lay bets on how fast this will climb it's way to the SCotUS?

There's no such thing as homosexual "marriage", so it would only make sense they there would be no divorce.

And there goes Full Faith and Credit, which the Judge swore an oath to uphold upon taking the Bench.

I do agree, though that there is no such thing as "homosexual marriage". Likewise there is no such thing as "heterosexual marriage".

There's just CIVIL Marriage, and sectarian religious marriage (which, by the way, has no Legal validity in and of itself).

Would you like muslims to force their sectarian religious requirements-for-participation upon you Civil Legal Rights?

Really. Think about it.

The separation between church and State protects EVERYONE from each other's bossiness, and ALL of us from sectarian religious control freaks.

He didn't violate anything. The states define marriage and the FF&C clause doesn't apply to marriages.

No ideals actually exist of themselves.

They must be LIVED into existence.

But that's good to know. I'll tell the muslims and mormons that they can start controlling your Freedoms right away.

You won't mind, will you?

Of course whether YOU mind or not is irrelevant. There are MORE of them than of you. So they are right no matter what you think.

Right?

It applies to court judgments, not certificates. I gave you an article written by a Yale law professor that explained that. You can choose to disregard it.

Some States consider certain acts of the Clerk's Office to be actions deputized to the Court.

Only an Order of the Court can set aside or modify any prior action or Judicial Notice of the Court.

Conceptually, this is why divorce requires a Court Proceeding. Were it not so, it would be no different than a high school breakup.

Are all the Hernando judges eyes closed to what is right and what is wrong? Do they just sit in their own little world in their courtroom and judge without going by the law. Tomorrow is the day. 3 years of fighting, collecting Information, keeping records, 3 years of sleepless nights and crazy thoughts, 3 years of hurt and emotional pain, 3 years of doing everything I could to see and talk to my daughter, 3 years of doing everything in my power to make sure she was ok, 3 years with wife drinking her wine, going out, living without a worry and alienating me as much as she could, 3 years of her going from one awful bf to the next in front of our daughter, 3 years all balled up into one day, into one judge, one hour. Hopefully tomorrow my daughter and myself will be able to breathe again. Pray for us and the judge. Maybe her attorney-MM will not win this one, maybe the judge will go by the law and the trial will benefit the minor child. Hopefully I will be back in my daughter's life and just not as a "visitor" and we can begin to heal from this awful experience. Melinda Meacham & Anne Jackson I hope you read this and wonder at night how many other children and families have you destroyed all for a dollar $$$. If you are thinking about using her she will bleed you and the opposing counsel of every penny you have and then some. Shame on this judge that did not do his duty and grant that couple a divorce. He took an oath!
