Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi
Do you mean last year?
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi.yes 2012.svetlana
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
You need to make active efforts to find your ex.
Write to his family and friends - maybe even instruct someone to try and trace him in Germany.
Once you have done that and failed you can ask the court for permission to go ahead with the divorce without serving any paperwork on him.
I hope that this is of assistance to you- if you need further information please ask
