Buffalo Divorce Attorney Discusses What Happens When You Can’t Locate Your Spouse
I sometimes receive inquiries from people, who have lost track of their spouses. They’ve separated, maybe years ago. The question is how do I find my spouse? How do I get them served? The courts are going to require that we make a diligent effort to locate them. As an experienced Buffalo Divorce Attorney, I would recommend that you contact friends, relatives, people that you know that knew them at the time to see if we can get a clue of where they’re at, at the present time.
If we do a diligent search for them, and we’re unable to locate them we can provide an affidavit to the court indicating that we’ve done our due process. Then, we can get an order of publication where we actually serve them by publishing in the Law Journal a Summons with Notice Action for Divorce. We try to avoid that because the courts prefer that we actually have notice on the defendant.
Are you unable to locate your spouse during the divorce process? If so, contact the experienced Buffalo Divorce Attorney Randy Gugino.
