i need to know what happens if he leaves the state before i file
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago
Thank you for your reply.
If he leaves the state before you file, then you would need to get a process server in the state where he runs off to in order to try to serve him. If you do not know where he is hiding out, then you would prove that to the court and you would ask the court to allow service by publication and the court will allow you to publish the notice in the paper. Then if he does not answer the suit you file a motion for divorce and community property division by default and the court will grant you everything you ask for.
As far as getting money or support from him at that point, you would then have to find some way to locate him and file the judgment in the state where he is hiding to seek enforcement against him such as garnishment or seizure of his property.
If you think he is going to do this, it is best if you get an attorney as soon as possible to get the divorce filed now and have him served as soon as you can, because the above process becomes complex, time consuming and could be costly.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
