Filling for a divorce on my own with no minor children involved
You need to have the clerk send the papers to the sheriff's office for service. You are already running into trouble doing this yourself. Please seek the help of a family law attorney, they can smooth the path for you!
If all you did was send him the waiver, he is not served. You will need to send a letter to the clerk of court requesting that the sheriff serve him at either work or home (and make sure you provide the address). It can also help the sheriff if you attach a photo so they know who they are looking for.
He doesn't have to sign. Have the Sheriff serve him instead.
