Divorced without knowing?

Mr O’Reilly, I am judicially separated for eight years. Can my Ex divorce me without my knowing.

The simple answer is No but I am assuming that you are still in touch with your ex and he/she knows where you are living.

 

A person who wants to divorce another must serve court documentation on the person they are seeking to divorce and if they cannot find the person then they have to go back to court for directions and they must give sworn evidence to say that they don’t know where the person is.  If your Ex is in touch with you on a regular basis, then you must be notified in a very formal way by the service of documents asking for the divorce. You cannot be divorced by stealth.
