Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

If your spouse is not able to be located, then you can still get a divorce, you would just need to file the petition for divorce, and then explain to the judge that she is gone out of the country. Then the judge can allow you to get "service by publication" which is where you put an ad in the paper once a week, typically for 2-3 weeks and then the judge considers that to be good service so you can proceed with a default divorce.
