Original petition for divorce by wife was filed June 2000. Petition refiled Nov 2013. Orignal dismissed - statute of 5 years inactivity. DOS trial judgement DOS Nov 15, 2000. August of 2000 I purchased a home as sole and sep property after she had filed. Basically, she backed out of a purchase to divorce, but signed a quit claim for me to purchase sole and seperate. Realtor is witness. 13 years later she played around w DOS to allege 50/50 community property on my home. I purchasesd sole and sep and lived in it seperately - no commingling. We shared nothing since 2000. DOS trial Feb 2016 is Judgement DOS Nov 2000. Can she come after my home with allegations of undue influence? After 13 years?

JA: Has anything been filed in court yet?
Customer: DOS trial is over - Judgement Nov 2000. I closed on sle and sep Aug 2000. She initiated the QC and the realtor even advised her. She said to the realtor "We are divorcing, he can buy, I want nothing to do with the new home".
