Can I get a divorce from my abusive husband without him finding me?

Asked almost 2 years ago - New Port Richey, FL

I left him over 5 years ago and moved out of state to Florida almost 3 years ago. I want a divorce but, I don't want him to find me. We have no under-aged children and my name is still on the mortgage of the house in Illinois that he still lives in, which I hear is in foreclosure. I want nothing except to be rid of him.....what can I do?
