Thank you for you reply to my question. Sorry that another expert keeps answering the questions that I have been asking you.
To answer your question, unfortunately there is no way to speed up the process since she is whereabouts unknown. Due process requires that a person be adequately provided with notice and when someone cannot be found, that process takes longer. This is actually for your protection to make sure that if she ever turns up again, the validity of your divorce is not questioned. Unfortunately all you can do is wait.
I wish I could provide you with a better alternative, but unfortunately that is not possible at the present moment. I wish you well.
