Divorce petition being ignored by ex

We separated in July 15. I moved out with the DC. I've finally managed to get funding for the divorce so have filed. He's ignored it and now I'm not 100% sure where he is. Think he's down south with his sister.

My solicitor is going back to the court to see what's the best thing to do, think they're hoping to have it signed off as if it's been received so we can proceed rather than having bailiffs serve him as we're unsure of where he is.

Has anyone else had this and how long does it take. I'm thinking at this rate I'll be able to get divorce anyway with being living apart for so long.

He's lost his job, no longer pays maintenance and I think he's probably remortgaged the house (I wasn't in the mortgage) and is gonna let it get repossessed so basically me and the DC get nothing financially. CMS informed me he's claiming carers allowance for his sister now so I'll be getting some maintenance at some point. He's just a narcissist and has to be in control at all times so has made everything as difficult as possible for the last 2 years.

Any advice would be great Smile
