Texas law provides various procedures for proceeding with a divorce regardless of whether the location of the spouse is known. 

The procedures differ based on whether or not there are children of the marriage, as well as the character of property acquired during the marriage and issues regarding that. It is possible to proceed with a divorce in either case, so long as you can show the Court what the complete situation is and that due diligence is being applied in making a full disclosure to the Court for a proper distribution and proper grounds for divorce. 

A name change can also be included in a divorce, as well as specific findings relating to protection of the parties or children.
