This question was asked in KY divorce section and you appear to be from PA. I can only provide general advice regarding the law in KY. In KY, in a case where one spouse is absent or gone from the state, you may still get a divorce after a Warning Order Attorney is appointed to look for your spouse. If after a certain amount of time, the spouse can not be located,the Warning Order Attorney submits a reports to the Court.
