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?

I'm married with two children, 18 & 16 yrs old. Soon to be 19 & 17. My wife has been lying to me about her whereabouts for several months and I'm pretty sure she's having an affair. I'll have concrete proof in about a month. My questions are all based on if I have proof she committed adultery.1. Can I legally get her to move out of the house? The house is in both our names.2. Will I have to pay any alimony?3. Can I sue?Thank you
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

I am in the middle of a divorce with my wife, and she is now
I am in the middle of a divorce with my wife, and she is now telling me she will not sign the papers. I am looking for more information on how I move forward from here without her signature. We live in New Hampshire, and we do not have children but own a house together, if that matters. I am also wondering if someone can give me a general idea of the cost, and the difference in cost between that and a divorce with both signatures. Thank you for your help.
