Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
Please may I ask:
- are you certain of his address or not?
- if not, what attempts have you made to locate him?
Is this all in the process servers statement? Did the process server put the papers through his letterbox? Do you know if he has any active social media or such like?
Wow that sounds like a man with issues!!
If you had managed to get him served then you could have just applied for decree nisi and that would have been in form D84 and the form for Statement in Support depending on the ground you used and attached the process servers statement.
As you didn’t manage to serve him you do need to use the application notice form. That’s the D11 you have and you need to complete the D13b as all attempts have failed.
I would suggest you complete Form D11 asking for Sevice to have been deemed to have taken place on the basis of what you have already done. You can also ask for service to de dispensed with on the same form and the court will decide which they consider is appropriate given the steps you have taken. Attach the process servers statement. You don’t need to attach the divorce petition. Copy it all 3 times. The fee For the application is £155.
