No one can stop you from getting a divorce. Just file the paperwork. If you and your wife come to a settlement on all issues (Custody, Visitation Schedule, Child Support, Spousal Support, Division of all assets, and Division of all debts), you never need to appear in court. If you cannot come to a settlement on some or all of the issues, those will need to be decided by a Judge. You will likely want to consult with an attorney for the best way to approach all of this.
