My wife left me recently after just 12 months of marriage. She was an alcoholic and it has been one of the most difficult relationships I have ever had.
She left just one day before she went into rehab with out even telling me
She came into the marriage with nothing as I have my own house.
I am not sure what the procedure is but a divorce is inevitable - I am not sure what I have to do and more importantly what are the financial implications. Just want this all behind me as quick as possible. Given the circumstances I don''t think she will be awkward.
She has the marriage certificate - will I need that ?
Any advice would be really appreciated.
You might have to offer up some token go away money but before you do that I''d suggest that you tell her how much a divorce costs (the wiki service advetised in the right hand column is the cheapest you''ll get and you have to add the court costs to that) and simply offer to pay for it.
