I had no idea where my ex was when I divorced him. I went through a lawyer. In the state where I live, if you can not find your spouse to serve him/her the divroced papers, it gets published in a court docket type news paper for a certain amount of time, then the proceedings continue. As long as he doesn't read the court docket news paper, he will never no you filed. It was also stipulated in my dicvorce papers that he left, had no rights to the kids and if he wanted to see the kids, he has to take me to court.
