Q: How to reopen a closed divorce that was not finalized

I filed for divorce in 2019 and my other half was never served as they couldn’t locate him due to him being homeless. I didn’t pursue it much further and now the case is closed, but It wasn’t finalized. It was closed due to lack of activity. Do I reopen the case or start a new petition?

Rand Scott Lieber
Rand Scott Lieber answered on Sep 21, 2021

It should be less expensive to reopen as opposed to beginning a new case. Check the fees with your local clerk's office. You will still need to serve him. There are other methods such as service by publication when a person cannot be found. Look for a free consultation with a local family attorney.
