               Address: ___________________________

                            ___________________________
        INSTRUCTIONS WHERE RESIDENCE OF SPOUSE IS UNKNOWN

        First, contact the Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) at 740-797-2523
and request that they check in the nationwide child support database for an address for
your spouse. CSEA cannot release this address to you, but they can give you a letter
indicating whether or not they have an address for your spouse.

       If CSEA does have the address, take the letter indicating that they have it to the
Clerk of Courts, along with the rest of your divorce papers. Request that the Clerk of
Courts obtain the address from CSEA and that your spouse be served by Certified Mail to
that address. Also note this request in the "Instructions for Service" section of your
Complaint for Divorce.

        If CSEA does not have the address, proceed with the forms in this packet to
request an Order directing the Clerk of Courts to post service of notice. There are three
papers that you will need to file.

        The first is a Motion. Please fill in your name as Plaintiff and the name of your
spouse as Defendant on the top of the page. Also, fill in the case number on the upper
right hand corner. You will need to sign your name and fill in your address and phone
number at the bottom.

       Second, is the Affidavit. Please fill in the date when you last had contact with
your spouse. Also, in detail, state whom you have contacted immediately before filing
this paper so as to locate the residence of your spouse. This should include the Child
Support Enforcement Agency, plus you should attach a letter from them indicating that
they do not have an address for your spouse in their database. The listing could include
your spouse's relatives, friends, past employers, post office, etc. You then need to sign
these papers in front of a Notary Public.

        The last paper is the Journal Entry. Again, fill in your name as Plaintiff, name of
your spouse as Defendant and the case number. You should make two copies of each of
these pleadings.

       You are now ready to file these papers. Please go to the Domestic Relations
Division Offices located on the fourth floor of the Athens County Courthouse beside the
elevator. They will direct you as to what happens after that.
