Thank you for reading.
I've posted more about my situation here: http://www.avvo.com/legal-answers/husband-abandoned-family--do-i-have-a-legal-obliga-1699661.html
I know you need a year of abandonment to qualify for that fault in an AL divorce; but there are a myriad of other reasons such as (documented) abuse.
I need to file SOMETHING, anything to legally separate us even though I've only lived here for two months and AL requires 6 months; FL, my prior residence, does not recognize legal separation.
The reason I need this is because I need some kind of financial support order from the father for our two kids. I pay for everything, keep receipts, etc. I also need some kind of documented child care plan.
Any thoughts and advice is GREATLY appreciated.
