Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Do you have any way at all to contact him, either through email or family members? Are you able to ask people in Nigeria for an address for him?
Thanks for confirming. Based on this you can apply for a divorce using the divorce petition and £550 court fee, and simultaneously apply using Form D11 and a £50 court fee as well as a statement outlining the situation with him moving abroad and your enquiries with friends and relatives (together with any evidence) and apply to proceed with a divorce without an address for him and dispense with service. It will be for a judge to decide whether to grant this. In the alternative you can apply for substituted service and serve through his friends or family which you must specify.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
