my husband lives over seas in panama, we were married in feb. of 2012, i want a divorce as he lied to me and has no intention of returning to the U.S. . as when he was here we lived together for 7 years until he got deported and had to stay out of the country for 10 years. now that the 10 years is up i found out he has 2 other children and lives with another woman in panama. can i get an uncontested divorce. i feel he will not sign for a divorce. what can i do? We were married in panama, he told me that i can divorce him from panama, not from the U.S.
My husband and I have been separated for over a year, already have the child custody and child support orders finalized, and would like to proceed with an uncontested divorce. Since we both agree there will be no property distribution is a property settlement agreement necessary? If so, is there a simplified version we can use?
