Hi Mr. Glew,
I am trying to divorce my husband but my attorney has been unable to serve him. I am pretty sure he is intentionally avoiding service.
Is there any advantage he can gain from avoiding being served? What do I do if I am unable to serve him?
There is no real strategic advantage to your husband avoiding service, unless he is trying to establish residency in another state. More likely, your husband is attorney shopping and wants his attorney, once retained, to have the full 30 days in which to respond. On the other-hand, your husband simply may not be ready to call it quits. More often than not, the latter is the motivation to avoid service.
