File for divorce in Ohio in the county in which you have been residing for at least 90 days. Spouse would have to be served where now living, or by publication in the newspaper if address unknown.

This response is not legal advice, but is general information only, based upon the information stated in the question and general legal principles. It is provided for general educational purposes of the public who may have similar questions, not for any specific individual or circumstance. It is not intended to create, and the user of Avvo understands and agrees that this response does not create, an attorney-client relationship. Legal issues depend on all the specific facts of a situation, and it is not possible to cover all the facts and issues on Avvo. If you would like to obtain specific legal advice about your issue, you must contact a local attorney who is licensed to practice law in your state. Mr. Jaap is licensed to practice law in Ohio. He and his law firm gladly accept new clients, but they cannot accept any representation until they confirm that it will not create a conflict of interest with their existing client relationships and obtain a signed representation agreement. Accordingly, do not send them any confidential information unless and until they have confirmed their representation of you in writing.
You can file for divorce, serve through publication and then have a divorce granted based on the service by publication.
