Inability To Locate Spouse

Generally, a couple decides that they no longer want to be married to one another and begin the divorce process. Other times, the couple separates, a spouse moves away, or fail to keep in touch. If the person seeking the divorce cannot locate their spouse, then Florida law allows for service by publication. The Marin Law Firm, P.A. has the legal expertise you need to file for divorce without your spouse being located.

To file for divorce and serve your spouse through publication, you must take the appropriate legal steps and then swear under oath that you have made diligent attempts to either serve your spouse or, if you do not know your spouse's whereabouts, made diligent attempts to locate your spouse.

After following the legal steps required for service by publication, the divorce can proceed. However, standard Florida divorce laws still apply.
