File the divorce papers have them served on the spouse. If there is no response within the required time limit file a request for the divorce to be granted under the state default laws. A spouse cannot avoid a divorce they can only contest the terms of the dissolution petition. If the default laws apply the non compliant spouse forfeits the right to contest the terms of the divorce decree.

It is the court - not the wife (or husband) who grants the divorce. In most states, if one spouse files for a divorce, the court will grant the divorce (assuming there are no jurisdictional issues). She may not want a divorce, she may not agree to a divorce, but she cannot prevent you from obtaining a divorce.
