A: In Oklahoma, you could get a default divorce. If you’re in a bigger county, their law library might have resources or special free/low cost programs. Legal Aid’s website also has forms and helpful information.

A: You need to file a petition for dissolution of marriage. Depending on if you can serve him or not there are some procedures you can take to meet the requirements. Your best bet is to contact a family law attorney in order to make sure you get the appropriate filings made.

A: I agree with the other 2 attorneys that have posted. You file a Petition and attempt to get him served. It sounds like you don't know where he is so you can ask the Court to allow you to serve him by publication. When he doesn't respond you can file a Motion for Default and the Judge most likely would grant your divorce. Good luck!
