How do you serve someone divorce papers that is out of the country?

My husband is living in his home country and I have no way of serving him. I have recently started divorce proceedings and paper is filed at court but was told that they would collect dust until I served him or took other steps. Are there newspaper proceedings?I’m at a loss as to what to do now. We have been separated for over a year and I’m ready to get this finalized. It is a non-contested, no child custody divorce.
