Does anyone know what the proper ettiquette is on how invites should be written concerning in-laws that are divorced? Are both parties on the in-laws side supposed to be added or just the father’s? And what if the future father-in-law and has a girlfriend and not a wife?

There are many variations depending on if the bride’s parents are paying for the wedding and you want to indicate they are the hosts; or, both sets of parents are hosting, or, the bride and groom are paying and want to indicate who the parents are.
Is the groom’s mother remarried?
I wouldn’t include the girlfriend.
I would word it like this if the bride’s parents are hosting the wedding and the groom’s mother is remarried:
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Allen Brooks
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
William James Russo
Mrs. Joanne Ruth Wilson (Joanne Ruth Russo if not remarried)
Mr. Anthony Thomas Russo
etc etc etc
See these links for some suggestions:

I’ve always seen it as the above post. Remarried or not, only the grooms parents current legal name is listed, not the new spouses etc.

My dad is remarried and this is how I did mine.
Mr. John Smith & Ms. Barbara Smith request the honour of your presence….

I am already married. I’m trying to do research for my friend since I’m a bridesmaid for her wedding.

We are doing “Together with their parents” and I know some people do “Together with their families”
My parents are divorced and dad is remarried so I didnt want it to be complicated!
