Allan Wolk's answer First, consult with an attorney. If you have children and/or assets, you will need an agreement and divorce documents. If your spouse agrees, you can also do divorce mediation which is rapid, inexpensive and as painless as possible. Call me for a free consultation. 845 634 8179. See me website on Justia.
Allan Wolk's answer Don't panic. You can either ask the court for an extension or temporarily answer the summons by
yourself, saying that you are handling it pro se. Then, get an attorney who will contact the court and
the other attorney with a notice of appearance. A summons does not mean that you have to appear in court, just answer. I will be happy to give you a free consultation. 845 634 8179. Visit my websitse at www.wolk-divorce-attorney.com. Allan Wolk
Allan Wolk's answer 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
