Hi, I’m Sean and I will be assisting you as an expert today. I’m an attorney with more than 20 years of experience. It is my goal to provide a solid overview of your situation. Whether the analysis is good or bad as to your matter, I want to make sure you understand any points you need and that you have options to better address the questions you have. If I am able, I will also provide you with some resources. Please note that the system, independent from me, may offer a phone call. You are not obligated to engage in a phone call, but I am happy to speak if you desire. This is completely up to you.

I am happy to help. Question for you - do you have children with your spouse?

SO in reality it is pretty simple. I can provide you, at no charge, some links to resources and forms that will allow you to complete paperwork to be filed with the Court to initiate a divorce. Texas has a procedure for, once permission is granted (and it is a straightforward process to obtain this), to have a spouse whose location is not known, served via a publication in a newspaper. Once notice runs, usually less than a month, you are able to obtain a hearing and have a divorce granted even without your spouse there.

Here is a link to the divorce forms for a no child divorce and here are the forms for providing notice via publication.

Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. There is no specific course of action is proposed and no attorney-client relationship or privilege formed within this conversation.

If you have any follow up questions it would be my pleasure to answer them. As experts we only get credit for the time and effort we spend on our answers if you rate us positively - 5 stars is definitely appreciated but not required! There is no cost associated with you rating me and you can still ask follow up questions after rating me and I will respond.

One final point, there may be a delay between your question and my answer; this is because I'm either not at my computer or helping someone else but rest assured, if you ask, I will provide an answer. Thank you again.
