Asked on: 7/31/13, 12:43 pm

During my drinking days, I got married. All I remember is his name. I have no date or year. I don't know if I was divorced or if he is alive. What can I do?

By law, he needs to be served with divorce papers. If he cannot be located, you need to do newspaper advertising pursuant to the law. Any way you go, you will definitely need his full name, DOB, date of marriage, place of marriage, etc.

You should know the county where you were married. If you do, you can obtain a copy of the marriage license. The license should have all the information set forth in Attorney Brodsky's answer.
