I was married in Fiji to a Fijian citizen on November 12

Customer Question

I was married in Fiji to a Fijian citizen on November 12 2013. We separated on March 6 2015. Do I have to go to Fiji to lodge the divorce papers? Also we have a child. Can I apply for a divorce with custody arrangements?
JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No not yet.
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else important you think the Lawyer should know?
Customer: He is not paying child support but other than that nothing that I can think of.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
