Michael Mandelbaum Tries to Dodge Divorce Case, Argues Definition of Legally Married

by Admin on October 17, 2014

In a divorce case from New Jersey, a wealthy man is claiming that his marriage is invalid because the marriage license was issued after the wedding and therefore negates the need for divorce proceedings, reports Philly.com.

The case involves Michael Mandelbaum, the son of an owner of the Minnesota Vikings, whose attorneys made the motion to dismiss the multi-million dollar divorce case in May. According to Philly.com, the file alleges precedent, citing other cases where ceremonial marriages were declared void.

Debra Mandelbaum’s attorneys filed a countermotion in June with documents establishing proof that Michael “behaved as if they were legally married,” reports Philly.com.

The case is reportedly due to appear before court this month.

Thailand divorce attorney comments:

Thailand marriage law requires marriages to be registered with the government. Customary or religious marriage ceremonies within Thailand are not generally recognized by the Thai government as legal marriages.

However, we have encountered cases where people believe they were married according to Thai law, but later found out that the marriage was not valid. This has occurred frequently with marriages at Thai Embassies (outside of Thailand). Although such marriages are recognized by Thai marriage laws, they may possibly not be recognized by the law of the place where the marriage physically took place and where the Thai Embassy was located.
