I’m about a month away from the year and a day point and looking forward to finally ending this ordeal. I recently discovered (through checking my credit report) that my stbx, who has refused to respond to any communication since June, has been living with her boyfriend in at least a couple of different states since she moved out. I cannot say for certain where she lives now, and therein lies my dilemma.
When I file, I will need to provide a last known address for her. Assuming that she no longer lives at that address, what are the next steps? How long can I expect this process to last if she simply cannot/will not be located and/or refuses to respond?
I consulted with attorneys early on in this process, and it seemed to me that given the relative simplicity of our situation, I would be able to handle the actual divorce pro se. Would hiring an attorney to handle this from here on out possibly speed the process up?
