Losing a spouse is difficult, especially if you have children. And it’s more challenging if you’re in the middle of a divorce proceeding.  The death of a spouse makes moving forward more difficult for the other party but amidst the pain, there is always this one question that will have to be addressed: What happens next? When one spouse dies in the middle of a divorce proceeding and if at the time of the spouse’s death there is still no final decision or judgement of divorce issued, then the proceeding will be discontinued and withdrawn. The status of the couple is unchanged and they remain married. The status of the surviving spouse is either widow or widower.  The death of a spouse during a divorce proceeding has implications not only on how the rest of the process will turn out or if there will even be a continuation of the proceedings. A Kaspar & Lugay divorce attorney near me will be able to assess your situation and give you a better idea of how you can move forward after the death of a spouse in the middle of a divorce proceeding.
