Divorce After Death

Journal Categories

Divorce after Death? Not in PA, a lower court has ruled. For stories on this case, see:
Indiana Law Blog, "A man can no more be divorced after he is dead than he can be married or condemned to death. Marriage is the union of two lives which can be dissolved either by death or by process of law, but after it has been dissolved in one of those ways, you cannot dissolve it again; you cannot untie a knot which has already been untied."
We first learned of this case from the Art of Divorce, which has updated it. Each of its posts link to the AP stories.
