Hello, Desiree. I'm assuming by now you're received your mail and you've convinced yourself that my resposne to your petition for annulment is irrelevant because the California court has dismissed the petition for dissolution that I filed back in November 2012. But as far as I recall the California court did no such thing. At our last hearing the clerk asked the court about how to proceed with the dissolution and the commissioner responded that if you wanted to go forward with that you'll have to file in Arizona. That, unfortunately for you, is not a dismissal. Moreover, a court does not have the authority to arbitrarily dismiss a petition - there MUST be a legal basis for such a dismissal, and the California court provided no such legal basis. As far as I can tell, the only basis the California court provided for NOT proceeding with litigating my petition at that time was that it couldn't find the petition in the case file - but you and I both have our stamped copies so that's all we need to provide as proof that the petition was filed...and that the matter IS pending before the Compton court. And, finally, what is important right now is whether or not the matter of our marriage was already pending before another court *on the date you filed your current petition in Arizona*. So, even if the California court dismisses that petition tomorrow (which it can't because, again, it requires a legitimate, legal basis to do so), then you'd still have to refile and start the process over in Arizona. I could have saved you a lot of time and effort and told you this a long time ago, but why would I? How would that serve my interests? And remember, in order to use bigamy as a basis for an annulment you will have to prove that I was already *legally* married to another person on August 26, 2000. The important part there is already "legally married". Meaning that the person I was allegedly married to was not, herself, already married to another person at the time I allegedly married her...and that I was the actual person that she married. I have documentation and the witnesses to contradict your claims - including an affidavit from Kim Shires stating that I am not the person she married. But, we'll deal with all that when it become relevant :) . Good day, Desiree. I hope you enjoyed your week in Alabama and Tampa. Cheers, Patrick P.S. I've decided to put your seb site back up but haven't had time to update the content.
