New York state allows abandonment for a year or more as sufficient grounds for a divorce. Eight years without seeing your husband certainly qualifies. You can inititate your divorce on the grounds of abandonment and yu shouldn’t have any problems. If there isn’t a big estate to divide or children involved, you may be able to handle most of the paperwork yourself. Check with the New York State Unified Court System for more info:
