Customer Question

My husband sold our matrimonial house for us (including our 2 children) to love Jamaica in his home town. Things have not worked out and the kids and I returned to the UK. He is here on holiday but will return to Jamaica shortly - alone. Can I serve divorce papers on him? I have tried contacting him about arrangements for the children but he refuses to answer.

Well you would of course need to commence the divorce proceedings and then you could get the divorce petition served on him whilst he is in the country.
