When a Defendant Cannot Be Served Directly in a Divorce - Default Divorces and Notices of Publication as an Alternative Process for Serving a Complaint

Jul 15, 2015 @ 04:01 PM — by Michael Green

In those cases where a defendant is no longer at their last known address and cannot be served directly because their new whereabouts are unknown, the Court may allow service of a divorce complaint via publication notice.  These are generally divorce cases where the parties have not been in touch for a long time.  The defendant in the divorce cannot then be served the divorce complaint via personal service through a process server or acknowledgment of service, which is otherwise required by the Court Rules.  

A motion is made to the court requesting publication notice after due diligence to find the defendant has been made.
