My husband and I signed a Declaration and Registration of Informal Marriage form back in September of 2011. Currently he and I have been separated for nearly 5 months now and he has hired legal counsel and has filed for divorce. We are set to go to court regarding the matter August 19th and I'm wondering if a divorce is even necessary in our given situation? However, we have a three year old son whom he is now questioning paternity even though he has always claimed paternity. We married a year and a half after our son was born. In an effort to save myself the cost of the divorce as I am representing myself and am not contesting the divorce or the paternity test. There is no question on my part regarding paternity.
