Also, are there assets to be divided up? Are there minor children involved?
Hi. It is my understanding that you were having difficulties viewing the chat. I've switched to a Q&A format, which usually clears up any issues.

THERE ARE NO CHILDREN INVOLVED AND HIS ONLY ASSET WILL BE A 2008 HONDA CRV
ONE PARTY PROBABLY CANNOT BE FOUND
Ok. Assuming you and your husband can agree on who gets the car, the divorce process should be relatively simple. In terms of how long it will take, that can depend on several things, including how busy the judge you draw is and how quickly the attorney starts on it. That said, I would expect it to take between 3-6 months, based on my experience. Regarding price, there is a very wide range. I think you should expect to pay $500 on the very lowest end. Since this is an uncontested divorce with no real issues, you should shop it around to as many lawyers as you can and go with the cheapest one. This is just a matter of filing paperwork on certain deadlines, so it doesn't require any degree of skill. Also, if you really want to save money, there are forms and instructions available to help someone do it themselves. For example, see:
All-in-all, the process should be relatively fast, given your situation. My recommendation would be to hire the cheapest lawyer you can. It will save you a great deal of headache and worry over doing it yourself. But, that's your call.
