How do I serve papers to my ex, I know he lives in Cincinnati (I’m in Illinois) but not sure where he lives or works?

You need to file papers with the Clerk of the court and then have the clerk issue a summons. Take the summons to a process server and have them do a skip trace to locate your ex. They will then serve the summons.
Sometimes simple internet searches can provide those kinds of answers; you may need to pay an nominal amount for some search sites; the post office may have a forwarding address for mail. Then you may need to hire an investigator.
