Q: How do I get a divorce if I don't know where my husband is. Separated 5 plus years. Married in TN but I live in GA.
We were married in TN but I live in GA. No kids or property. Separated 5 plus years. I'm not seeking alimony or spousal support
A: If you can prove you have made every effort to find your spouse, then a court here may give you a divorce by publication. Essentially after you have filled out an affidavit that proves you have attempted to find him, it will run in the paper for 6 weeks, and the divorce can be granted after that time.
