    Question Property Division After a Long-Term Separation

    My question involves a marriage in the state of:Texas

    I have been separated from my spouse since September 2004. We were married June 0f 2004. Now having finally found the address of his parole officer, I can serve him with divorce papers. I am having trouble filing out the section for property. I understand that Texas is a community property state, but we did not own any property together when married, and even had separate funds and finances during the time we were together. Now that I have not seen him in 7-8 years, I have no idea about the property he has aquired since then, and I have no significant property my self (no car, house, land, bank accounts, etc.) I found a place where you can check a box that says "no property" on the petition, will this be satisfactory for the petition or will I have to prove we have no property to divide that I know of? I am filing pro se, since I have no funds to get a lawyer. Please help.

    You fill it out to the best of your ability. I don't have the form you're looking at in front of me, but if the form is specifically asking about marital property and there is no marital property to divide, it's perfectly reasonable to check the box that there's no marital property.
