Spouse has left , with no contact for weeks don’t know where he is staying. we have a house that is his name. I would like to file a noncontested divorce but would like a percentage of the house sell?
Three words: get a lawyer. You will not only likely mess up or delay the divorce, but you will never on your own get clear title to a home.
There is no such thing as an online divorce. Divorces happen in court, NOT online.
And you will be made to FIND and SERVE your spouse. Someone gone just a few weeks can be found, with minimal effort, 100% of the time. If you are unfamiliar with the tools, almost any divorce lawyer can skip trace a person like that. In 38 years of practice, well over 1000 people swore to me they did not know where their spouse was in an initial call. Either they, with my suggestions, or with my help, located the spouse in all but about 1-2% of those cases. Judges will require a dilligent search. If successful, unless he signs and consents to the case, you will then have to serve him.
Note that most homes will be divided. Unless you agree that issue, like many others, will be tried. Again, all this likely goes very badly with no lawyer.
You misposted this in the category "uncontested divorce." Unless you reach a settlement with your spouse before filing, you have a contested divorce.
If my answer does help you, please consider marking it helpful, or a best answer. In answering your question I am basing my answer on the limited information here, and more information is likely needed to properly and fully answer, but hopefully the answer helps. Please know that in answering I am not your lawyer and am only providing general information. To retain a lawyer you need to enter into a written retainer with the lawyer (and you have not hired me simply because I answered something here). AVVO has useful tools to contact the lawyers you see on AVVO. (Please note that my office does NOT presently handle new bankruptcy cases, criminal cases, traffic tickets, appeals, juvenile court matters, DFCS cases, or landlord-tenant cases and although I have done contested custody matters for decades I'm semi-retired from those). Please be aware I am licensed only in Georgia, so an answer in another state may be different. You should not rely on online questions as a final legal answer or a "how to" and need to sit down with a lawyer to get an answer to safely rely on. Many legal cases have vital deadlines that you may miss with delay, so please be aware of that.

You can't. An uncontested divorce is one where you and your spouse have agreed to everything and signed a settlement agreement reflecting that agreement. If your spouse has disappeared, then there is no agreement. You don't have an uncontested divorce. You also can't complete a divorce online. In most counties in Georgia, you can draft the pleadings and then file them online but a divorce does require the involvement of the court. You will have to find your spouse in order to serve him with the complaint and summons. Talk to an attorney. He or she will have the tools and knowledge to find your spouse or will have a relationship with a private investigator who can. Good luck to you.
There is no such animal as an online divorce. Also your divorce will not be uncontested. Hire an attorney to represent you.
