Default Unknown Address

Is it possible to get uncontested divorce when spouse is in another province? Address completely unknown. Separated since 1978.

You can definitely obtain an uncontested divorce when the respondent is resident in another province, but you have to know where she is. You may want to consider hiring a private investigator to find her. Information such as a SIN, last known address, or anything else you have may be very helpful.

If it is absolutely impossible to find her, you may bring a motion for substituted service. If successful, this would allow you to serve your wife via e-mail, at her last known address or at a family member's residence. Fees for this depends on whether or not you hire a lawyer to do this for you. Having a lawyer's expertise behind the motion may save you a lot of time and trouble, but if you are properly prepared you could certainly do this yourself.
