On February 1, 2010 Suzanne Hinn filed for divorce from televangelist Benny Hinnin Orange County Superior Court. At the time of filing a public reason for the divorce proceeding was not given. Mrs. Hinn hired Sorrell Trope, a well known California celebrity divorce lawyer. Suzanne and Benny had been married for over 30 years.
Looking at California FAQs about divorce law:
How long does it take for a divorce to be finalized in California?
The divorce procedure in California takes six months from the date the Respondent (the spouse) is served.
Giving time for Benny Hinn (respondent) to get the papers, it’s possible the public could hear about finalization and other details soon. Hinn told his children on February 17th, according to a public statement on his website. News outlets ran the statement starting around February 18th.
That was six months ago, so let me ask my US friends familar with California law: would the divorce have taken place or would it legally take place soon if Hinn received written notification when he supposedly told his four adult children?
Update: Not unexpected – The National Enquirer releases an online teaser about an affair.
Are the Hinns divorced or not?
