Normally she can file for the divorce and send him a copy of the petition. He has to respond to the petition to the courts. If he does respond he has to appear in court to attest the divorce proceedings. Do you see him coming. Once the court date is set she can explain her situation to the Judge. he will see that the husband has not appeared and that they live in 2 different countries and grant her divorce. I did mine by myself with no lawyer. only thing complicates these cases Is if they have shared assets and children good luck
