He should have served you with a copy of the application, unless you signed a joint application. It is a requirement of the Family Court Rules that you be served with the application. If you know where he lives now you could check with the Family Court closest to where he lives and check the file to see what it says about service of the documents. If he claims to have served you, but you never received a copy then it could raise a question as to validity of the dissolution
