Kathy Griffin’s estranged husband Randy Bick has responded to the comedian’s petition for divorce after she hired a private investigator to locate him.

In the court filing obtained by PEOPLE, Bick requested spousal support and attorney’s fees be covered by Griffin in accordance with the former couple’s prenuptial agreement.

The legal response comes after Griffin, 63, revealed in court documents obtained by PEOPLE that she has been unable to serve Bick with divorce papers because his whereabouts remain unknown.

Since leaving their shared home at Griffin's request, Bick has "not been in contact with her" or shared where he is "residing or staying." Despite her efforts in hiring a private investigator to track him down, the documents claimed that "this too has been unsuccessful."

"[Griffin] will make further attempts to locate [Bick] and will now take steps to enter his default," the brief continued.
