  1. @TboneTX, I was sad to have to tell you. I’m still sad about it. I don’t want to get divorced. Even though I’ve been separated for years, I haven’t fully accepted it yet. It’s like I think in a second we could just end up back together and pick up where we left off. But I know that’s not realistic, and I’m so tired of waiting.
  2. So I’ve done a bit of research, but I’m honestly too overwhelmed and anxious about all of this and just have no idea what to do. Even posting this is difficult. 😔 Could someone please point me in the right direction? My husband (who is Ecuadorian) and I have been separated and living on completely different continents for 3 years now. He moved out of the US in 2018 (essentially letting his green card expire, as he never applied to renew after 3 years). I wanted to work things out; he does not. He wants to file for divorce but is now living in England and works a ton. I told him if he wanted the divorce he needed to do it because I wasn’t the one that wanted it. But now.. I’m tired of being in limbo and just want to start over already. But how? I have no clue what to file or how. I’m in NJ, and luckily we do not have any kids or property together. We only lived with family. Both of us really don’t have very much, nor do we have anything to really split between us. We have lived completely separate lives for the past 3 years. I never even changed my last name. I read about filing for abandonment, but I am partially to blame for him leaving, so I don't think I would qualify. I would rather do this without lawyers if it’s possible, especially considering that we have nothing between us. I just want this nightmare to be over. 😞
