DEMISE OF A DIVORCE DOYEN AND A FORM


The funeral of Elizabeth Taylor took place yesterday. For many years she entertained on screen with her amazing talent and good looks and then subsequently devoted herself to various needy causes. However she will also be remembered for her marriages (8 in total) and divorces of which there were 7. Definitely the kind of client her divorce lawyer must have loved.

In the same week we finally saw the form that will replace the current divorce petition on April 6th. As could only have been expected it has become a perfunctory tick box affair, although, and much to the alarm of many clients, one still has to pray that the marriage be dissolved. Comments received over the years have included:
Well I suppose if I got married in Church it’s only right that I pray for a divorce;
Is this right, surely it’s wrong to pray for something for yourself?
I thought God didn’t believe in divorce; will He really give her one?

Reducing our humble petition to something more reminiscent of a passport application, is, of course, intended to start the whole process in a somewhat easier fashion. If clients find the same thing, who knows I might even find a divorce doyen of my own to act for here in Darlington. In the meantime, I guess I’d better practise ticking some boxes myself; we all have a census form to complete tomorrow.

Question: Was Elizabeth Taylor married at the time of her death?

Answer: My understanding is that Elizabeth Taylor remained a divorcee at the time of her demise and is survived only by children and grandchildren. However, if you have alternative knowledge and want to share it here - please do.

She was a really glamorous woman and seemed to have been a really faithful friend to Michael. May they both rest in peace.

But god does approve of divorce--in the instance that the husband is beating up his wife as i recall it. gonna have to get back at you on which verse it was tho as i can't recall at the moment.

Divorce is not an ordinary thing and it is not even a thing. It is breaking a life time commitment. Though it is painful, we should accept it, we will never know divorce will help us escape from abusive treatment of our partner.
Your posts really helped a lot to those who needed help regarding divorce guide. Keep up the good work.
