If you do not know where your husband is and have no method of figuring it out it is possible to obtain a divorce judgment. The usual method in these cases is to have your divorce notice published in a local newspaper for the last place you knew where he was. If you know the country where he moved to, or even better the city, you can have this notice printed in a newspaper that serves that community.

I would recommend you consult with a lawyer for this to make sure it is done within the legal guidelines to do so. It should be noted that you will also need a judge’s permission to proceed this way.
