He is active duty Army, out of state. I reside in GA. We have no shared property and no children. I also have no savings, thanks to him, so I am attempting to file for divorce as inexpensively as possible so I may move forward with my life.
When I spoke with the court system here, they advised me to visit the website http://www.icandocs.org/ to proceed with a divorce on my own. Is this advisable? Do I need to go through an attorney to file for divorce? Is there any way to recoup my financial losses caused by him (his high balances on my credit cards and my half of the tax refund which he refused to give me) in the divorce process, or does that push beyond the limitations of an uncontested divorce?Thanks to mostly everybody for your replies. Perhaps I should have been more clear, though I was warned by this site to avoid including personal information: the credit cards are unfortunately solely in my name. I allowed him to use them, and he maxed out two before I canceled them. He continued to ask for money to repair his vehicle, and the marriage went south when I denied the funds. The upshot is this: I am not filing for a contested divorce. I am not muddling through the court systems for months or beyond, blowing money on court and attorney fees to recover money from him that I may never see anyway; I am choosing my battles, yes. If recovering the funds is a civil court issue, so be it, but I have no plans to file a contested divorce.
