Is It Possible to Get a Divorce If You Don't Know Where the Other Spouse Lives?

In the case of Colby v. Colby, 102 Wis. 2d 198, 306 N.W.2d 57 (1981), the Supreme Court of Arizona ruled state courts have the ability to look at other decisions from different states when the case involved is related to both. The current state has the ability and discretion to rely on the decision from the past state if it seems a reasonable judge would come to that conclusion.

More details are necessary about the case in order to give a definitive answer regarding this question. However, the court has previous experiences with divorce situations like this.

The details further needed regard your current filing and any new information since your last filing for divorce, as these are critical pieces to finding an answer. Call a Family Law Attorney in order to talk all of this over.

"Trisha and Katy were great listeners and advice givers. Divorce sucks and there's no way around that but these ladies made it a smoother road to tread on. I couldn't have been happier - except if it wasn't happening at all. They took the time every time I needed to help guide me into making all the decisions that needed to be made and counseled me through tough situations and for that I will be eternally grateful. "
