Q: I am trying to start the divorce process with my husband who ran off with our daughter out of state. I haven’t been able
To do so yet since I do not know his address. I recently found out where my daughter is going to school so I know what city he is in at least. What can I do with this information? Can the school give a lawyer his address? We have no formal custody agreement or anything keeping me from her, he’s just avoiding me and has alienated me from my daughter for the past few years
A: You can hire a skip tracer to locate him. You can at this point still move forward with the divorce. You should work with an attorney who can help you with the proper course of action.
A: Because you are the mother, you should be able to contact the school and get your daughter's school records, which should include the address where she and your husband reside. Once you know this, you can file for divorce and have him served to begin the divorce process. Whether you should file for divorce in Georgia or in the state where he currently resides depends on how long they have lived outside of Georgia.
