离婚的诉讼时效对于离婚或执行离婚条款可能是至关重要的. A statute of limitations is a legal term that describes the period of time in which a person has an actionable case; after the statute of limitations has passed, 即使发生了可证明的违法行为,一个人通常也不能起诉要求损害赔偿. 各地区对离婚诉讼时效的规定各不相同, 在对配偶或前任配偶提起诉讼之前,务必理解所有的限制法律.

In areas that have fault divorce laws, 离婚诉讼时效在离婚请求中可能起重要作用. 如果知道配偶有外遇,直到20年后才提出离婚, 法官可能会合理地质疑婚姻不忠是否导致了离婚. The statute of limitations in fault divorce areas are meant to be common sense laws; if a person was content enough to live with the situation for many years, 他或她可能没有法律权利在法庭上提出索赔或要求有利的财产分割.

在无过错离婚地区,离婚诉讼时效的问题往往较少. 因为这些司法管辖区的法院不关心离婚的原因, 像不忠这样的问题甚至很少被纳入合法的离婚案件. 如果一个人因为身体虐待而离婚,他或她可以起诉或提出要求 criminal charges 但这和离婚是两码事. 此外,家庭暴力案件也有诉讼时效.

就离婚协议而言,也可适用离婚诉讼时效. 如果一方在离婚协议中同意偿还婚姻期间发生的所有信用债务, he or she may be legally bound to do so. If he or she refuses to make the payments, 前配偶可以就信用损害和藐视法庭提起诉讼, as long as the case is brought within the statute of limitations. 一旦地区法规到期,前配偶可能没有法律追索权.

重要的是要弄清楚适用理由中的离婚诉讼时效是否考虑了举证规则. The discovery rule is a common law 这一概念指出,当犯罪或不当行为被发现时,诉讼时效开始, not when it first occurred. For instance, 如果一个妻子有外遇,十年后才告诉她丈夫, the statute of limitations begins on the date the husband finds out, not at the beginning of the affair. Since indiscretions can be hidden for decades, 使用发现规则可能对有利的离婚或和解至关重要.

七年前,我离婚了,我妻子负责保险,im游戏试玩分摊费用. However, she has never asked for it until now. I'm dating someone. I paid for her education and she paid for the insurance. Now she is trying to get me for half of the insurance. Please advise is there a statue of limitations ? Do you have any advice?

我妻子八年前在苏格兰提出离婚,但一直没有离婚. She's the pursuer so I can't file for divorce now. She likes this tiny bit of control. Is there a statute of limitations on her application?

I live in Florida and she lives in Pennsylvania. We have been separated for 26 years. 我以为她已经离婚了,她也是这么想的,但严格来说im游戏试玩还是夫妻. I would like to clear this up.

@CalyRC: Your situation sounds similar to mine. 我的前夫骗走了我在他生意上的共同财产权益,但没有骗走我的房子. 在他说服我签署离职协议的时候我精神上已经丧失了能力, signing away my rights to his business.

My divorce was final in 2005, too. 我不确定im游戏试玩能做些什么,除非有新的信息被曝光. I've been trying to get an attorney to take my case, with no luck. 在im游戏试玩签署分居协议时,我的前任从未给过我有关他收入的正式文件. Like your ex, he handled the finances, taxes, etc. 分居协议是他自己起草的,而我当时病得太重,找不到律师.

7年来,我一直想和妻子离婚. At one point, after a year of our separation, a judge had said that I had to pay six months of car insurance, which I was willing to do, 但她并不满足,还想要更多,所以不肯签署离婚协议.

Since that was six years ago, 法官对六个月汽车保险的判决有诉讼时效吗? 而且,我和她也完全失去了联系,好几年没见过她或说过话了. I have met a wonderful woman whom I want to marry, 所以我想知道如何在不让我妻子反对的情况下离婚. I'm still willing to pay the car insurance as well. I just want to move on with my life. We have no kids together, or property.

I have been trying to get a divorce from my wife for over 7 years. 有一次,在im游戏试玩分开一年之后,一个法官说我必须支付6个月的汽车保险, which I was willing to do, 但她并不满足,还想要更多,所以不肯签署离婚协议. 既然那是6年前的事了法官对6个月汽车保险的决定是否有一个限制的雕像? 而且,我和她也完全失去了联系,好几年没见过她或说过话了. 我遇到了一个很好的女人,我想和她结婚,所以我想知道如何在离婚时不让我的妻子为离婚而争辩, 我仍然愿意支付汽车保险,只是想继续我的生活.

我和我的前任结婚20年,其中5年分居了(不是合法的). I didn't ask for anything, but I regret not asking for the house. I ended up tacking on $70,000 to our mortgage, so that he got his half (the house was originally $160,000).

I now want to sue him for the house. I live in CA. Is it too late? We were legally divorced in Aug. 2005. That is the date on divorce decree. One important note: my ex always handled the money. I never knew anything about what we had, etc. He intimidated me, 他甚至说,如果我想要赡养费或他的退休金,他会拿走一半的遗产. I was extremely naive, gullible and ignorant back then.
