I'm in the state of MS, if my spouse left over 6 years ago

I'm in the state of MS, if my spouse left over 6 years ago is it best for me to file abandonment or no fault? I was informed that if I file abandonment when the judge ask if I'd accept my spouse back I must say yes but at this point I think the spouse would want me back now that I've moved forward with my life but I don't want my spouse back for sure. Do you think the process could be long and drawn out since such long separation?

I live in Louisiana and am currently still living in the

I live in Louisiana and am currently still living in the same home as my wife. She has contacted an attorney and is trying to file for divorce based on adultery. First of all, how can she file for divorce if we are still living together? Also, she's left our home several times for days at a time with no contact with me saying she wanted divorce. So yes, I did have a brief fling with another woman. I admitted it to my wife & she came back home & reconciled. So how can she file on grounds of adultery now?

I have recently left my husband after several years of

I have recently left my husband after several years of waiting for things to improve. My husband has left the marriage emotionally and is instead verbally abusive, insulting, manipulative, unfaithful, a pathological liar and has an addiction to porn that has destroyed our sex life. He has not been willing to put forth any effort to help things get better or to change any of his behaviors. I want a divorce. He will not but that is only because he doesn't want to lose anything or have to spend any money. I cannot prove any of the allegations above in a court of law. Is there a particular ground I could use in a "fault" divorce based on why I initiated this separation?

My husband has left our home. I believe he will establish

My husband has left our home. I believe he will establish himself in his home state. The state we currently live in requires 1 year seperation before I can file divorce. He will agree to a settlement uncontested, as we have had that conversation. ..and the division line of who gets what...clear. no children, no debt. What can I do now to make this settlement simpler when the time comes. Is there any paperwork he can sign now, if I can get to him? If he isn't around and has left the state already, how do I serve him divorce papers in a year? Also, I may be moving to CA. I believe I would have to establish residency there for one year before I could begin divorce proceedings? If I move to PA...which is where he will be, can I get divorced sooner? I think there law is 6 months. Thank uou
