The best way would be if you can both agree...you see, a divorce can either be contested or not contested.
Uncontested; Now the fastest, (and by far the least expensive) way to get a divorce is if you can agree on the terms. If you can agree on "who gets what" there is not a need for attorneys...this will cut the costs to a very small amount (court fees)
Contested; if you can not agree, this is a contested divorce. To proceed you need an attorney or need to act as your own attorney (very bad idea). Here the parties present evidence to the court on "who gets what" and the court decides. This takes longer and involves attorney fees for both sides.
SO, if you can agree with your "soon to be ex" on who gets what, great! If not, you need an attorney.

It is possible to get his name off...either by his consenting to it...or a divorce court ordering it. So if he will not agree? Find a local attorney and file for divorce...once he realizes what it will cost to fight a divorce, perhaps he will be interested in settlement.Please let me know if you have more questions.
