Under the laws of New Jersey, if a husband files for divorce in New Jersey, he MUST notify the wife and give her a copy of the divorce complaint. He may have claimed that he did not know where you were, and that may be how he did this. I would need to look into it. Call me, I can assist you with this. You need to know whether he is trying to keep you from getting your share of family assets, or alimony, or child support.
