Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
I understand that you have been residing in England for 6 years. If it is your intention to remain resident here the you are able to petition for divorce in this Jurisdiction.
I note that your question relates to the service of the divorce papers upon your wife.
Initially when you complete the divorce petition you should include you wifes address on these papers. In the first instance the court will serve the court papers by post once they have had issued your divorce petition.
Your wife will be allowed additional time to respond to your divorce petition (by completing the acknowledgment of service form that she will be sent by the court). If your wife responds to the divorce petition then you do not need to tkae any further action in relation to serving the divorce papers on your wife.
If your wife does not respond to the divorce petition then the family procedure rules set out that the court papers must be served on your wife through the local embassy/ local court and you can apply through the family court in this jurisdiction to do this.
