I need to speak to an attorney & file for divorce. Do I have to do that in L.A. With a lawyer there or can I do it all from NY with a NY attorney?
The information above is not quite correct. You may be able to file in New York regardless of your residency if:
a) your spouse resides in New York and has been a resident for a year, or
b) the cause of action arose in New York.
I went to my last court date two weeks ago and the judge granted a judgment of divorce to me on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. Believing the case was over and I was free, I removed my husband from my health insurance. No...
It depends on what the lawyer does. You can probably fix the problem by offering to pay his COBRA or for alternate coverage until the Judgment of Divorce is signed.See question

It may or may not be a legally binding contract. It probably is not a satisfactory settlement agreement suitable for filing in a divorce proceeding.
In either event you'd be advisable to have it reviewed by a local divorce attorney.See question

The original publication was more than a year old, and the person or persons who published back then are not the persons who released the information later.

Nothing you have said in your post indicates a cause of action for defamation. Whether you have an employment related cause of action or not isn't clear- but you may wish to contact an employment lawyer and discuss the matter in detail.See question

Furthermore, what is the best way for the effecting party of the divorce to start proceeding with respect to Child Support of two children from that wedlock (under 18 years of age); all of them residing in the Middle East for almost a year?
If the couple got the divorce together, that is, if both were properly notified and given the opportunity to appear in court, and if the decree were not manifestly unfair (or successfully challenged by one of the parties) it would be honored. Child support and custody matters subsequent to return to the US would be handled in Family Court, by petition of one of the parties.See question
