My wife left my home in early spring of 2004 and established

My wife left my home in early spring of 2004 and established separate residence until sometime between early fall of 2006 and early spring of 2007. She moved without a forwarding address. I last saw her in late summer of 2006 and last spoke to her by phone in the late spring or early summer of 2007 at which time she did not reveal her residence. At this time, I do not know her whereabouts, whether or not she is still in town or in state. We have not been together for over 12 years now.Is it necessary that I utilize the services of an attorney to file for a divorce? Can I go the the county courts and file on my own behalf to attain a uncontested divorce? If necessary, I have proof of several counts of adultery, abandonment, alienation of affection, fraud, and irreconcilable differences on her part.

I'm currently separated from my wife, I live in

Hi,I'm currently separated from my wife, I live in Frederick MD (for 3 years now) and we would like to get a divorce. We are filing ourselves but out of curiosity: I brought in $200k from the sale of my apartment in Belgium, that I owned before I married my wife. We have used that money for downpayment on our house here (that had both our names on it), but we sold the house again. I had the main income (95%) in total over our marriage.My question is: what is she entitled to?Also, what is the uncontested divorce process? Does the filer still need to attend a hearing?Thanks

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.

Recently my spouse and I agreed to the terms of an uncontested

Hi, recently my spouse and I agreed to the terms of an uncontested online divorce and I filed the initial forms. However, now my spouse is not wanting to move forward and sign the remaining documents, because of the calculated amount of child support. He says it is too much and he no longer agrees with the settlement and wants to go to court. What will happen now?

I live in Henrico, VA. My husband has filed uncontested

I live in Henrico, VA. My husband has filed for an uncontested divorce. We have been separated for two years. We have a joint mortgage on a home I purchased October, 2006 prior to our marriage. He signed a pre-nuptial agreement forfeiting any monetary rights to the house if we divorced. We were married February, 2007. In 2012 he insisted I refinance the house so he could retire. He became the co-borrower on the mortgage. The deed on file with the county only has my name. We separated July, 2014. I rented the house out September, 2014. I have paid all fees associated with finding a renter, all repairs and any mortgage that wasn't covered from the rent income. My husband's attorney did not mention the disposition of the house or mortgage in the divorce papers. He wants me to waiver my rights to appear before a judge. What can I do to protect myself, and make my husband legally responsible for half of the mortgage if I lose the renter?
