    Default Divorce, Alimony and Child Support from a Missing Husband

    My question involves a marriage in the state of: New Jersey

    My husband and I were living in US for the past 13 years and we have one 5 years old kid together. Couple of years ago, we decided to move to our home country Russia. Last year, I decided that my marriage is not working and decided to move back to US. Recently I have filed divorce papers and have tried to serve him in Russia at his last known address. Apparently he has moved from there and I am unable to serve him. My lawyer has told me that I can still get the divorce through a default judgement after publication, but the judgement may not have an order regarding alimony and child support. I am confused. Does it mean that child support and alimony can not be decided until my husband gets served? He doesn't have any property or assets here in US, since apparently he had moved to Russia for good. Can I ask the court to render a child support and alimony decision based on his last salary in US couple of years ago? What about if he never comes back to US, would I never be able to collect child support and alimony from him?

    You need to ask your lawyer.

    Have you tried to locate him using social networking sites, private detective, etc.? Does he not answer calls or e-mails?
