Answer
Wanda,
DISCLAIMER:  I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY: I am someone with experience with Family law matters, and can give some directions of what I would do but these are my opinions: I strongly recommend that you get an ATTORNEY who specializes in family law in your immediate county/country.

Contact a Professional Attorney who works with family law in your area: You can post your case in a local news paper for a period of time: If ex doesn't respond then you can move forward.  However, this does vary from county to county so talk to professional Attorney before doing anything else in your case, ok.

Hope this helps
Jeff
