Q: What do I do if my spouse won't give me their home address?
If it's possible to locate your spouse despite not knowing their home address, do that.
For example, perhaps you still have a valid work address. Or perhaps you have a friend or relative who can locate and serve him (or her.) If your spouse defaults (meaning fails to respond to the Summons with Notice), you can file the divorce papers using his or her last known address. If your spouse responds to the papers, the current address will be in the response.
If serving your spouse is not possible, then you'll need to make what's called a "diligent effort" to discover the address.
There is a list of steps that the court requires to conclude that your search was diligent.
