I'm sure you can. Go to the court house and file divorce papers and fill out everything that you can. They will tell you what you have to do.

A friend of mine had the same problem. in most places they will post an ad in the paper of the last known place your spouse lived. if they do not respond within 30 days, you can have the divorce finilized without them. good luck, i hope everything works out for you.

In the UK you can apply for a divorce without knowing the whereabouts of your spouse but it is well worth checking to see if they have actually divorced you first :) When you apply via a County Court you can check this out. Also, you can search the electoral roll. Please be *absolutely* sure you hve the right person before you start having papers served on some poor unsuspecting soul.

You have to file a contested divorce. Even if you find out where they are and cannot get them to agree to a divorce you can still get it. It takes longer and sometimes costs more than if both people become involved, but it can still work. It usually takes around six months to get it finalized where a non-contested divorce can be final in three.

Additionally, it is called an "Abandonment of Marriage".
