    Divorce by proxy

    What is the name of your state? Texas

    My boyfriend is in jail in the state of Texas and has asked me to help him get a divorce. I have filed the paperwork for him but I will have to represent him in court as his proxy. Is this legal or not?

    It is absolutely legal...of course, I'm assuming that you've already passed the bar and been admitted to practice law in the state you are planning to do this in

    I suggest you find a "boyfriend" who doesn't already have a wife and who ISN'T in jail

    I agree on all counts.
    There are two rules for success:

    (1) Never tell everything you know.

    sorry.....you will have to wait until he gets a divorce himself.

    THEN you can MARRY him by proxy.
