Hi, thank you for your question. Are you in England or Wales? How long have you been married for?
Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I note than you were hoping to rely on Divorce paperwork which you now know to be false.
However in the Uk (any part of it) you still have time to complete the divorce process before next April in any event.
You will need your marriage certificate - or other evidence of your marriage if yours was not evidenced by a Certificate.
You will need the address of your ex or evidence that you have done everything possible to trace him.
With those you can start a divorce petition based either on the fact that you have lived apart for more than five years OR his Unreasonable behaviour if it has not been that long.
