My husband and I have not lived together for over 10 years. I filed for divorce 10 years ago while I was incarcerated, but neither of us actually went to court. The order of divorce is on file with the courts because we have a child. Our son is 16 years old and he lives with his father. I am not trying to get custody.
I am pursuing the divorce now because I am currently in a relationship and want to be able to progress in that relationship. My current husband and I get along and there is no property to be split up. It's merely a matter of getting the separation on paper.
I would like to know about how much it would cost and if I would have to start paying child support. I am currently on SSI and support my son the best I can, but there aren't any custody issues.
