What is the quickest way to get a divorce?

The quickest way to get a divorce (which must be filed in the state in which you or your ex-spouse is a resident of) is to file all the divorce papers properly, agree on the terms of the divorce settlement, and work with the court. Every state has a waiting period between when a divorce is filed and when it is finalized but often the aspects of a divorce that make take the most time are those things that the spouses cannot agree on (typically this can be alimony, child custody, and child support). If there are no disputes then the divorce will move along quicker.

How do you file for a divorce when you live in Oklahoma and your spouse lives in Italy when he will not agree even though there are no children in the marriage?

The same process is used regardless of the whereabouts of the non filing spouse. The party wanting the divorce files the dissolution of marriage petition in their state and county of residence. Service to a spouse who is not living in the state where the divorce is filed is known as an edictal citation. If the whereabouts of the person is not known the filing party must prove to the court that they have made every possible attempt to find the person or a member of the person family (subsituted service). A spouse who refuses to respond when served with the dissolution summons, regardless of where they may be residing forfeits his or her right to contest the action. When the non filing spouse refuses to respond or cannot be found, the requesting spouse will be granted the divorce under the default laws of the state in which the petition is filed.

Can a CA resident get a divorce in another state?

Yes. I am not sure from your question whether you, a CA resident, would be filing for divorce in another state or whether your ex-spouse is filing for divorce in another state. Either way, divorces filed in other state are valid so long as they comport with the divorce laws of that particular state. One of the main requirements in most jurisdictions is a residency requirement, so that the person seeking divorce must be a legal resident of the state before he or she can obtain a divorce there. Put differently, you or your ex-spouse (whichever one is filing for the divorce) must be a resident of the state they are filing for the divorce in. However, this requirement is sometimes quite short, as low as six weeks.

Can you divorce spouse in NJ if spouse refuses to sign?

Yes, you can because it is not necessary for a spouse to sign divorce papers in New Jersey or in any other state. A complaint for divorce is filed and a summons issued. Both are served on the other spouse, who then has a certain time to answer the complaint. If no answer is filed and if the papers had been properly served, the plaintiff will be allowed to proceeds to try to prove his/her case without objection by the defendant. All this can occur without the other spouse signing anything. No "signature" is required for the obvious reason that one cannot reasonably expect a person about to go through a divorce proceeding to be cooperative with the plaintiff and sign papers.
