How do you get a divorce if your spouse left for another country? This is my friend's dilemma. (yeah.. haha.. but it's true.. I'm NBM ) My friend fell in love with a girl in college -- she was an international student here in US and left for her home after graduation. So, he visited the girl's country many times to see her. Finally, the girl came back to US and they got married here. But, things didn't work out between the two and, in less than 4 months, the wife just took off and left for her country. That was last summer. The weird thing is that my friend can't reach his wife. She's not returning his email and he doesn't even have her phone number. Her parents does not speak a word of English so my friend hired a translator but for some reason it didn't help. Well, as far as I know, this is the story. My friend is finally giving up on waiting and thinking about moving on, but worris whether he can divorce his wife without her signing the paper.
