The process is the same as if he was a U.S. Citizen. He will be required to be given notice of the court action and will be required to reply or default. You should contact an attorney experienced with matrimonial law and begin an action.

It's the same as divorcing any person - the only difficulty is in arranging service of process. Ghana is not a signatory to the Hague Convention on International Service of Process, but there are options available.
