I want to get a divorce, but my spouse has disappeared. Can I still get a divorce?

It is still possible to get a divorce even if you don’t know the whereabouts of your spouse.  It is necessary to show the court that you have made efforts to locate the spouse by doing such things as contacting employers, talking to friends or relatives, reviewing property or DMV records, or checking with a known landlord.  If this is in vain, a legal procedure called “service by publication” can be used.  This allows you to post a notice of divorce in a newspaper.  Having done this, with courts approval you may obtain a divorce.
