A: Very difficult. If you KNOW the community he/she is in, you can serve them via publication under Trial Rule 4.13

Is there any property to distribute? And children? Those issues can complicate matters.

Hard to tell you if there is a legal aid program in your community if I don't know where your community is. You might try to contact the county bar association where you live, or even the Indiana State bar association.
