I did a quick search it looks like it probably means that he is aware of the divorce and doesn't need to be served papers notifying him you are filing. But depending on your state it could be slightly different (I read Texas).

The paper says "I understand by signing this waiver of service that I give up all legal rights in this case", which is why I was wondering. :)

Maybe you can proceed with the paperwork and file and no longer need him to do anything? That sure would make it easy. You don't have property or money to split right? So it should be pretty straightforward.

In my state, the state is giving the attorneys the ability to mail summons instead of subpoena people because it saves them $60 per case.  It's not legally binding so you can walk out at any time in the summons and if you don't show for it, there's no penalty but then they will subpoena you to appear.  BUT they have to get your waiver of a legal serve in court stating that you are aware that you are not bound to appear and that you can be subpoenaed to appear if you prefer(ie, to get the day off work from an uncooperative employer).
