    Brian’s Answer

    You need to contact a divorce attorney in the Fitzgerald area, and schedule a consultation. They will probably recommend that you try to locate your estranged wife, but if you can't, discuss alternative forms of service/divorce.

    She can file without her husband's permission or consent. That being said, if he is this uncooperative this early on in the process, then he may continue the behavior after an action is filed.

    She should really retain an attorney.

    Brian’s Answer

    Assuming you meet the residency requirements, you can file in Sacramento have your wife served in LA. Most attorneys will hire a process serving company to do this, so it is easy.

    Prices vary from firm to firm, and are dependent on case specifics. The best way to get a quote is to meet with prospective attorneys for initial consultations.

    Brian’s Answer

    Speak to a family law attorney in NJ as soon as possible. There isn't a set age in which a minor can choose which parent they want to live with, but your daughter is old enough for a judge to consider her wishes.

    You need to retain a lawyer to handle this for you, so you can give your daughter your full attention and ensure that she gets the help she needs emotionally.

    You can proceed with a divorce. Assuming your case is uncontested, it will be a rather simple matter. But I still advise you to retain an attorney to assist you.

  • How long does it take to complete an uncontested divorce in Michigan and does the $995 fee cover all expenses?

    Our assets are divided and we have no children. Does this cover both parties.

    Brian’s Answer

    Most attorneys only charge a flat fee retainer for a simple, uncontested divorce. They will advise your spouse to seek separate counsel, as they are not able to represent both parties. Prices will vary from firm to firm.
