Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you today.
First you need to call the court - ask them if they have received a response.
If they haven't the easiest way for you to carry on with the divorce is to have your spouse personally served with a copy of the court papers.
You have two options to do this.
1) you can instruct a court bailiff. This is a set fee of £110. They are sometimes slow.
2) instruct a process server local to you. This may be cheaper and quicker. Have a google search in your area and get a few quotes. If you go for this option you need to ask the court to send you the sealed court papers so you can give them to the process server.
With either option – once service has happened – you can then apply for decree nisi. You just need to attach a copy of the statement provided by the process server or bailiff to say that your spouse has been served.
Let me know if I can help you further.

Do you know where your ex is living?
Then you are going to have to have him personally served with the papers.
Asking the Judge for a divorce otherwise will get you nowhere and waste your time.
The court will want to see that you have personally served your ex.
You need to choose the court bailiff or private process server so that you can finalise this divorce.
