Pregnancy has nothing to do with marital status--whether that's pregnancy prior to marriage, during marriage, or even after the dissolution of marriage. So the fact that you became pregnant by your husband after the divorce is filed does not affect your ability to get the divorce. If this is your first child, it does add a complete new dimension to the divorce: child custody and support. That is, who has primary custody of the child (or do you have joint custody); and also, how much does the non-custodial parent have to pay in terms of support. So  if you did not have children before and were handling the divorce yourselves, I recommend you get an attorney now to help you, since the situation has been vastly complicated.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
