    Default Divorce While Overseas For Military Service

    I am in the military and stationed overseas. My spouse and children were returned to the states on an EROD and have been living in the state of Texas for approximately a year and a half. I am ready to move on from my spouse and would like to get a divorce. How do I go about the situation?

    The easiest way is probably for your spouse to file in Texas.

    Having my spouse file would be the easy way if the decision to get a diviorce wasn't mine. We have been seperated physically for the last year and a half. I have been emotionally detached from my wife since before they left. She is not so willing to proceed with the process and has also said that she doesn't plan on making this easy for me. I need to figure out how to file since I don't actually live in the state of Texas and what my options are.

    If she's not going to cooperate and you file in the U.S., you realistically need to be in the United States for certain court proceedings. The number of appearances will depend upon the complexity of the case and the laws of the state in which you file. Given that your ex- and kids are in Texas, it makes sense to file there, and thus it makes sense to consult a Texas lawyer about how you might achieve that while stationed overseas.
