My husband filed for divorce without notifying me in GA (he is active duty military and claims he notified me via newspaper). The divorce was granted without my knowledge. He was in Korea when he filed and I was unable to answer because of the Hauge Convention. He is now back in Alabama and I need the case opened in Fl where I reside. Child support was NOT addressed due to GA not having jurisdiction over child and my half of his military retirement was NOT addressed on the final decree.
How do I open this back up in Brevard County FL where myself and my daughter live (now 19). He no longer resides in the county in which the divorce was filed - he now lives in Alabama.
Am I able to register this final judgement and decree in the courts then petition to modify it to add retirement?
