Q: There was divorce filed by my husband 2 years ago. We reconciled but he never withdrew the paperwork. I want divorce now
The paperwork was filed in contra costa county. We live in solano now. We only had 1 child at the time the other papers were filed. We now have 2. How do I proceed with divorce? Or am I stuck at his mercy because he filed the paperwork 2 years ago and never closed? I also want to move to my parents in Oregon with my kids. There is history of abuse. Restraining order filed against him in 2019 in contra costa and an EPO in Solano in Dec 2020
