Unhealthy marriage domestic abuse I had a restraining order against him fearing for my life. He is now in Prison and I want to be divorced but don’t wAnt him to know my whereabouts
Arizona law does permit you to respond to the divorce while also seeking that your address be protected. Or, if his matter has already been dismissed for his "lack of prosecution", you could start the process over by filing your own petition, again while seeking that your address be protected.
A qualified and experienced family law attorney can of course assist you in considering your options and then getting where you need to be. Most of us offer free, ½ hour consultations, in which your matter can be discussed in detail. That would be a great opportunity to discuss the specifics of your matter and develop a plan. I would encourage you to quickly schedule this free consultation.
