    Default What is My Marital Status After Filing for Divorce

    hi, i am marley and i experience the same issue.
    hi, i am totally confused as i filed for divorce in 2007 in Queens, New York. I have not been granted divorce yet. My husband had moved out of the house in 2006, so I filed for divorce in 2007 with the reason being he 'neglected' me. He had since put my life down and had gotten lawyers to kick me out of the house which is in his name. He has our kids and refuses to sign the papers. On the final court in 2009, we finally signed the 'temporary divorce paper'. However, my lawyer told me that the divorce isn't finalized until the judge stamps it, which it never happen and I am not sure how long it'll take for it to be signed. Apparently, the judge had retired and a new judge took over. He is now trying to push back the final judgement and therefore, I am not sure if I am still married. My question is, are we still legally married or divorced or separated? I have no clue what my status is and I am now living with my girlfriend who has been supporting me since I was kicked out of the house. Can I be sued for adultery? She is trying to claim me as a domestic partner since I'd been out of work for a long time now and need insurance. Can you please advise if this can be done? thank you!

    You're still legally married.

    You can be legally married and legally separated at the same time.
