Beware of travel agents selling divorces

by | Sep 6, 2010 | Divorce |

Every now and then I find an advertisement for a $99.00 divorce. Sometimes it’s an ad for a twenty-four hour divorce. While these sound great, they won’t get you divorced. These ads offer divorces in foreign countries like Caribbean islands. They will get you a divorce certificate but the divorce won’t be recognized in Massachusetts. Massachusetts will recognize divorces from other states because the US Constitution requires that each state give full faith and credit to the court decisions of the other states. There is no requirement for foreign countries. Taking a week vacation in the Caribbean and coming back with a divorce decree will get you a tan but not much else.
