The simplest option would be to proceed with an uncontested divorce, assuming that you and your spouse are in agreement and willing to cooperate with the process. While you certainly can attempt to file a divorce on your own, strongly consider hiring an attorney. The process can be daunting if you have no legal training. Most attorneys will offer to prepare an uncontested divorce for a reasonable fee. Neither party will need to make any court appearances as long the divorce remains uncontested.See question

Most counties do not accommodate such requests but you may certainly contact the matrimonial part in Nassau County and explain the situation - perhaps they can make an exception.
