You should visit the Regional Court of the Magistrate's court in your area. One of the officials will assist you in issuing the papers through what is called substituted service whereby you are able to serve a summons without having the address of the other party. The court will then direct service, either by way of serving on a family member or in the newspaper. You may also consider bringing an application for interim maintenance pending the divorce. Being married in community of property entitles you to 1/2 of the estate, same that will include the pension, but in the event that he already cashed up on the pension you will have a problem.
