Can he do the divorce thru an online service?
What is the cheapest route we can take to resolve and dissolve this situation? Can we use the cheap online divorce papers?
He doesn't know where she is or if she's remarried or anything. They haven't had verbal or physical contact in more than 5 yrs. We don't know what direction to go or where to get cheap help to resolve/dissolve this union of theirs.
Hi again.The cheapest route would be for your boyfriend to file for the divorce himself without an attorney in his own local court. Obviously, there is some risk taking that approach since he is not an attorney and is inexperienced. Having said that, there are plenty of people who are successful in getting a divorce themselves without an attorney. He should visit the local court clerk to see if they have any forms or examples to use ... some do and some don't.I'm not sure what cheap online divorce papers you're referring to, so I can't say whether he can use them. If they're correct, then he can use them, but if they are not the correct papers then he cannot use them. Can you be more specific about which papers you're referring to?If your boyfriend files for the divorce, then he'll need to have his wife served with a summons and the complaint. However, it's likely that he can serve her via publication (i.e., taking an ad out in the local paper) if he cannot find her. The court clerk should be able to help with regard to instructions for getting service by publication.Thank you.
If our Texas County Court Clerk files here is that legal for California. Or do you mean the last known residence county he last saw her living in?
Thank you so much. Have a nice night :)
Wait a minute. How can there be a child support judgment w/o a divorce decree?
Why is my guy paying $700./mo. if there's no degree or signatures speculating to that fact? He was never served a notification or signed anything regering to the fact. It was just auto-deduct. How is this legal if there's no judgment?
