your wife didnt make you do anything and you shouldnt of been trucked up to start with and maybe (i dont know ) is why she is your ex and probably stands a good chance or had a lot to do with it and in this case ignorances is no excuse and has no standing and if someone dont want me -- well so be it -- if you signed your life away well i am sorry for you - and i like you need to get another and it would help if you leave all your sorry ways behind and by the way -- good luck and be strong --
Did she drug you without your knowledge with these narcotics? If you were high & signed papers, that's on you my friend. She can claim she had no idea of the frame of mind you were in. Did she hold you hostage? Have a gun or one of you're family members under threat? If she went to any lengths to get you to sign, she obviously wants out of the marriage so why not just let her go? I do apologize if my answer sounds sarcastic I am just confused as to how she forced you to sign...
As a general rule, if you are mentally incapacitated by alcohol or drugs the contract is "VOIDABLE". You must prove that you were affected to such an extent that you were incapable of making a properly considered decision. It may be difficult to prove.
I'm a Law Student. It depends if you CHOSE to indulge in the drugs or if you were FORCED to have them. If you CHOSE to take them then you are responsible for any action(s) that you conducted however if you were FORCED, then your ex wife would be charged with more than one offence. However, you can appeal to a court or magistrate that you were under the influence of narcotics when you signed the divorce papers and depending on your situation and the judge's decision, you may have the divorce cancelled or adjourned.
It is a general principle of contract law that mental incapacity voids consent. If you can prove that you were mentally impaired at the time you signed the papers, you may be able to have them declared void. However, the burden of proof will be on you. Are you willing to state under oath that you were under the influence of narcotics?
If you were doped up on drugs while recovering from a medical procedure or something and she chose that opportunity to take advantage of you you have a case. If you were chillin at the club or partying with your boys and she took advantage of you then you're screwed.
What rsarnol said. It makes me wonder how much in control of yourself you actually are to get so doped up you would sign something that a woman who was trying to divorce you would ask you to sign. And, why would you object?
