Hello. There are several steps that have to be followed. You have to show the court that you made a diligent effort to locate your spouse. Use of the internet can help here. If you find him, he can be served.

If not, then a petition has to be filed showing your efforts and asking for substitute service thru the local newspaper. Call me for a free consultation. 845 634 8179 And see me website: www.wolk-divorce-attorney-com Allan Wolk
