Spouse and I have decided on divorce, but not sure where to start. We got married very young and have been married less than 5 years. We have no children, no joint assets, no property.
We've divided our "stuff" and have kept separate bank accts since he moved out 9 months ago. He now lives cross-country and I am stuck doing all of the work to secure the divorce; thought it would be easier since we don't have any joint assets and we aren't cutthroat about anything.
Neither of us make very much money and I don't really want to foot the bill for a lawyer (and given the situation it seems unnecessary) but I have no idea how to do this. He won't be able to appear in court (which seems to be a necessity in NJ??) as he is living hundreds of miles away.
All advice welcome. Thanks!
