If You Are Unable To Locate Your 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:
- Swear under oath that you have tried to serve your spouse.
- If you do not know where your spouse is then you must show that you have made several valid attempts to locate him or her.
After following the legal steps required for service by publication, the divorce can proceed. However, standard Florida divorce laws still apply. We can help you effectively navigate this system to protect your rights and get you the divorce you are seeking.
Therefore, even though you will be able to divorce your spouse other issues such as property division, time-sharing/parenting time and support cannot be established without the other party being available. At The Marin Law Firm, P.A. we can help you resolve this dilemma and obtain a final judgment of dissolution of marriage.
