My husband filed for a divorce in Florida back in January of 2011. At first it was contested (my decision), then uncontested (I filed a MSA)- and now, HE wont file for a final hearing. I was told that I could file for a final hearing because I filed a counter petition- but that the Judge's Assistant needs to speak with the original petitioner first. He refuses to call the JA, and the JA refuses to call my husband. I now live in Georgia and have since Jan 2011. Can I re-file for a divorce HERE and get it? I can't do anything in Florida from what I have been told- aside from filing a notice of Non Jury and waiting a year or more for the Judge to see it- if he ever does. If I CAN'T re-file in GA- what CAN I do? Can I force a divorce in FL WITHOUT waiting a year? I am wanting to remarry.
