Jennifer Dulos, a 51-year-old Connecticut woman, has been missing since May of 2019. Now, her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, wants to have their not-yet-settled divorce dismissed. On December 26, Dulos’ lawyer, Richard Rochlin, officially filed a motion requesting that Dulos and Jennifer’s divorce be dismissed, according to Fox 61 News.
It was Jennifer who originally filed for divorce from Dulos two years ago, and prior to when she disappeared, the divorce proceedings were anything but smooth. The former couple share five children who were in the middle of a nasty custody battle. But now that there hasn’t been any advancement upon their divorce case for months, Dulos could potentially be able to succeed in getting it dismissed.
Dulos’ reason for this newest legal move is quite evident. He wants to gain back custody of his children, as he has publicly stated. The five kids have been staying with Jennifer’s mother, Gloria Farber, in New York since July, and she currently has custody over them. It will still likely be a challenge for Dulos to regain custody of his children because he and his former girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, remain the two primary suspects in this complicated case.

Jennifer’s attorney, Reuben S. Midler, thinks that Dulos may simply be disregarding the fact that he never stopped being the main suspect and is the person who police believe is behind her disappearance. Midler is fighting Dulos’ latest motion to dismiss the divorce case.
“The failure to even acknowledge that [Fotis Dulos] is the prime suspect in his wife’s disappearance can only be described as being akin to the Defendant having a ‘factual lobotomy’ as to the inconvenient facts as to his apparent involvement in the Plaintiff’s disappearance,” Midler said in a motion against Dulos.
Farber believes that Dulos is guilty and is doing everything she can to prevent him from gaining access to her grandchildren. This includes filing a lawsuit against him for allegedly failing to pay back loans he borrowed from Farber’s late husband. Dulos’ legal team has claimed that their is no substance to this lawsuit and that it is all an elaborate scheme set into motion by Farber to keep him from being able to see his kids.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, one of Dulos’ lawyers, William Murray, claimed that the lawsuit was “part of a concerted plan to drain Dulos of funds, tarnish his reputation and ultimately restrict his access to his five children.”
