My husband's whereabouts are unknown. How can I file an uncontested divorce?

We have been apart for more than 22 years. He has deliberately avoided detection(legally working) in order to avoid paying child support. His family may know his whereabouts but will not disclose this to me.

You can't file an uncontested divorce without his signature.

You can seek a divorce using normal procedures, even if he can't be located. See the information in the guide linked below.
