If all issues have been fully settled in a separation agreement and the separation agreement has been signed by both of you and notarized, then you can proceed to filing for an absolute divorce assuming you meet the requirements.
You can file for an absolute divorce without a lawyer. You must file the complaint and serve it on your wife by sheriff’s deputy or certified/registered mail (or she can accept service).
Check out our Absolute Divorce Page which has all the information you would need to help you file an absolute divorce on your own, as well as sample forms, and a step-by-step divorce guide.
