Hi, I got married in whirlwind 13yrs ago in Las Vegas, to an american. 3mths later I got ditched and never saw him again, I came back to the uk.
I dont know where to start to get divorced and I am engaged to my fiance of 6yrs..
I cant get hold of the american. Any advice would be grateful

You would need to take steps to trace your ex so that you can serve divorce papers on him. I'd suggest that you contact The Law Society
who may be able to suggest solicitors who have practical experience of this kind of problem. It's called substituted service. If all else fails, and you know where your ex is, it may be possible for you to apply for what is known as substituted service,

Thank you,
Yeah I've tried writing to the only address I know. Nothing ever comes back. I will ask a solicitor, I hope theres something that can be done and not too expensive.

Thank you
