How can i divorce my husband if i don't know where he is?

Asked over 4 years ago - Baltimore, MD

we got married in 2005, but broke up shortly in 2006 and i haven't seen him ever since. can i divorce him, if i don't know where he is? do i need to pay to get divorced? is it more complicated and expensive that way(when you don't have both parties consent)?
do i need to get divorced in the same state we got married in?

    Answered . You don't have to get divorced in the state where you were married. There are simple ways to find your husband, including the internet, private detective, family members. If this is unsuccessful, you can do it by publication.

    If you don't have the money for the filing fees and a lawyer, you may want to try the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service. I've provided a link for your information.
