You can do a service by publication. There are some things that you have to do prior to that, and if you would like to hire me, email me at [email protected]. The process might take 3 to 4 months.
I suggest you contact a good divorce attorney, as most any good one will know or have a good relationship with a private investigator who can probably easily find your husband (and if not, you will have met the due diligence requirement that will allow for service by publication).
Once he is found he can be served with your divorce paperwork, and since your children are with you the jurisdiction for determining custody will be in the courts where you live.
