When you separated the law required aa two-year separation before you could get divorced without the spouse signing papers. Because you have been separated for more than two years, you can get a divorce without her signing anything. You do have to properly serve her with the appropriate documents.
Yes, you can get a divorce without him needing to sign anything. As previously mentioned, you will still need proof of service. This can be a certified mail receipt if you send everything to the address you have. If he won't even sign for the mail, you can arrange for him to be personally served.
