What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Nevada
I completed all the forms for Complaint for Divorce and Service by Publication... This includes completing a form called Affidavit of Due Diligence. I was instructed by self help at the court to put an explanation for requested search information that I was told could not be released to me without a court order (Such as DMV and Utility Company) I was told without a court order authorizing me to obtain any information on my spouse they could not help me. So my request for service by publication was denied and the court suggested I try harder to obtain this information.
Since filing the original documents, I have been told by friends that my spouse is in Texas but no one knows an address. I have spoken to my spouse several times since she abandoned me and our 2 yr old son 8 months ago; and even though I have requested the address she refuses to give it to me.
So I cant serve by publication and cannot serve by personal service, what do I do?
She is the one who abandoned her family, so how come I am being punished? All I want is to protect my son and establish custody so she cannot surprise us one day out of the blue and disappear with our son.
I do not know what else to do, I cannot afford to hire an attorney.
