Hi Members...My ex has left me for almost 2 years and i could not get hold of him. I don''t know if he is still in the country as he is a foreigner. I like to get a divorce. But the problem is, i don''t know his previous address or current address which the court needs to send the Petition to. What should i do ? It would be very helpful If anyone could give me advice on this. Thank you so much.
You can still divorce even if you don`t know where he is, you need to have service dispenced which just means you do your best to find him but if you just can`t the judge allows the divorce, it is a bit more complicated than the usual route and it takes a bit longer, wiki do offer a solicitor service for this for £480, if you call them on the wiki line they can explain what you need to do.
It is and its a more common problem than many think, often people split up and don`t divorce and years can go by, in this situation you need to show you have done all you can to locate the spouse, it does involve affidavits (sworn statements of truth) but yes it can be done, the wiki solicitor charges £480 it can be a touch more in some cases because a news paper advert is often required in the spouses last known location.
