There are specific service procedures you must follow to try to locate and serve your spouse. If you cannot find your spouse after following those procedures then the court may authorize substitute service in which you can post notice of the divorce in the local paper. That doesn't mean if you don't know where he or she is you can just publish an ad in the paper. You will have to show you took steps to locate him or her, such as hiring an investigative company to try to locate him or her.
