I AM A DOD CONTRACTOR, WORKING IN AFRICA NEEDING A DIVORCE

It has been almost a year since I have been home. My wife has sold almost everything, and not paid mortgage/cars in 3 months. I need to divorce without seeing her again. No minor children involved.

You need to call a divorce attorney in South Carolina and go over everything with that individual.  Do not attempt to do this alone, because depending on your state's laws, some of the money you earned may not be marital property or a marital asset, same with her.  Further, depending the house and car notes and how title is held and whose names are on the loans, please consider that some of the debts may be entirely yours or hers.

Your divorce attorney will know how to make this quick and as painless as possible, how to divide property and what motions to bring to the court if needed to obtain any assets your wife took that should be half or partially yours or even entirely yours.

Try www.attorneypages.com and then check his or record at the South Carolina State Bar.
