Statements made in the Courts

Tuesday, July 31, 2001

Your Honor, I ask for the Court's indulgence to begin with. I'm trying to learn the proper way to present things before the Court. I cannot afford an attorney, and was turned down by the Volunteer Attorney's Association and must find a way to present my case myself. This does put me at an obvious disadvantage, but I ask the Court to please excuse me if I don't follow proper procedure. I apologize for unintentional improprieties.

I have the fundamental right guaranteed by the common law supported by the U.S. Constitution and the State of Nebraska to have my marriage legally supported and preserved, not pushed along the path to arbitrary dismissal for no cause. I have an equal right under the law to require the Court to keep this marriage intact and not to participate in any action that would jeopardize it.

I record publicly that I contest this entire dissolution process as it violates my religious, moral, common law, and civil rights. One flesh, lifetime blood covenant relationship is what is at stake here. One flesh, lifetime covenant law is the ruling authority in respondent and petitioner's life whether obeying it or not.

As J's wife, it is imperative for me to honor the vows and commitments of marriage as a declaration of my belief in God's law, the authority of scripture and as an expression of my own conscience. I hold a very strong belief in the commitment of our marriage vows.

I stand before you being "sued" and forced to forsake my marriage vows. I realize that our laws are to be respected, and I fully appreciate the justice system. However, in a country where the divorce rates are at an all time high, and here in Nebraska the divorce rate is over 50%, it seems ironic that someone convicted of murder might have a better chance at acquittal than a person committed to the concept that there is no such thing as "irreconcilable" marriage.

Nebraska Law states in the {Revised Statutes of Nebraska; Chapter 42-360 and 42-808} Mediation or Counseling Requirements: A dissolution of marriage will not be granted until reasonable effort for reconciliation has been made. If it appears to the court that there is some reasonable possibility of reconciliation, dissolution of marriage actions may be transferred to a conciliation court or the spouses may be referred to a qualified marriage counselor, service agency, or other agency.

I truly love my husband and am saddened by the steps he feels are necessary, to legally end our marriage. I pray for God's blessings in our lives, I truly feel that reconciliation would be His plan for our marriage. The door will always be open for his return.

Respectfully Submitted, Mrs. D A. L
