A power of attorney does not have an effect on the divorce process- ie the agent cannot accept service because of the conflict of interest, and because the service must be in person. When a party relocates out of country, and the address is unknown, the court will expect the filing party to hire a private investigator to locate the current address and then personally serve the individual in accordance with the state's laws. If the party is unable to be located after a due diligent search, then the party filing can notify the court of this via an affidavit of due diligence. The court will generally allow the divorce to proceed under the "default" method, so that the property can be divided, with the other party's share put in escrow/trust for when s/he is located. The court does have jurisdiction over property located in that state, so division of property should not be a problem.
