Uncontested divorce in Texas

When couples understand that they cannot stay together any longer, they have two ways of calling it quits:

  • Initiating a contested divorce. This option works only for those couples who have serious disputes concerning some important dissolution matters. That is why spouses have to get legal support to be able to defend their interests in court. This type of dissolution is usually extremely expensive, as apart from filing fees, spouses need to pay for lawyers. Texas attorney can charge up to $1000 per hour, so contested divorce turns into a huge financial burden. Moreover, a contested divorce usually lasts for months with multiple trials, making it quite stressful for all parties involved.
  • Filing for an uncontested divorce. This option allows divorcing spouses to spend less money and time since they already agreed on how they would divide property or share child custody after their marriage is over. Therefore, they may present their case in court without involving legal professionals. Also, such divorces are finalized in a shorter period of time than contested ones as there is no need for multiple hearings.

However, even if you and your ex are in a full agreement and are ready to file for uncontested dissolution, you still need to face the task of searching for and filling out the documents correctly. The problem is that even if you try to do it on your own and search for forms on the Web, there is a chance that you’ll find outdated or incorrect documents. So what can you do in this case?

Getting a divorce in Texas with a child

When ending a marriage, couples with children have to decide on such important aspects as child custody and support.

  • In Texas, custody is referred to as ‘conservatorship.’ All the decisions concerning child’s custody and support are determined by Uniform Child Custody Act.
  • Parents are eligible to develop a parenting plan to present it in the court. If they fail to do that, a judge will make a decision based on information available.
  • While granting the custody, the judge considers whether joint custody benefits the child, whether the first parent does not influence the relationship of the child with the second one, parent’s household locations, how much each party contributes to child’s upbringing, etc.
  • The court also takes into account child’s wishes while making the decision.
  • If one parent is granted sole physical custody, the other guardian is eligible to pay child support. The factors influencing the amount of child support are child’s age, parent’s financial situations, expenses, and the financial situation of the receiving parent, etc.
