Hello, I am trying to get divorced from my husband. He is a Cameroonian that now lives in Cameroon. He is not a US citizen and has never been in the states. We met while I was stationed in Germany. I am in the military and things didn't workout. I have heard from or spoken to him since 2012. I really need some guidance on where to start with my divorce
. How to serve him, how court works when the defendant cannot attend, and all that. Correction I have not heard from him since 2012
JA: The Family Lawyer
will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: I did when I lived in South Carolina and they wanted me to pay to have someone go serve him in Cameroon. That seemed a little obscene.
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.
Customer: Well we were married in 2010 and both agree that we wanted a divorce before I left Germany in 2012. Then he was forced to leave Germany because he didn't have a visa and kind of disappeared for awhile. Then I saw him start updating his Facebook account.
JA: OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Family Lawyer should know?
Customer: I don't think so.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer where you can place your fully refundable $5 deposit (plus $13 after the Family Lawyer responds). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Family Lawyer about your situation and connect you two.
