Types of Divorce in Texas

Contested Divorce in Texas

Contested divorces are ones in which neither party can decide how to settle issues related to child custody, child support, spousal support, and/or property division.

If you are looking to get a contested divorce in TX, then you will have to go to divorce court, where a judge will hear the arguments of both sides and make the final decisions regarding each contested issue in your divorce.

Uncontested Divorce in Texas

Also known as "no-contest divorce," uncontested divorces in Texas are those in which the divorcing couples can amicably agree on how to settle their divorces without going to court.

Examples of uncontested divorce include mediation and collaborative law, where the divorce settlement is reached out-of-court with the help of a neutral mediator or collaborative lawyers.

How to File for Uncontested Divorce in Texas

It is relatively easy to obtain a divorce in Texas if the divorce is uncontested. "Uncontested" does not mean that both spouses agrees to get divorced, but rather that both spouses agree on all terms of the divorce. This includes:

If you and your spouse disagree even slightly on something, then you may need a more traditional divorce. However, if you truly have an uncontested divorce, then online lawyer-assisted services can be a great low-cost alternative.

Modifying a Divorce

Many couples who get a divorce have already separated, split their property, and set a child visitation and support routine. For these couples, filing a divorce is usually just a formality, but an important one (especially Texas) because, with no “legal separation“, you remain married for all purposes until you complete the divorce, including the accumulation of community property and liabilities.

Once your divorce is final, if you need to change any of the terms of the divorce and your ex-spouse does not agree to do so, then you will need to hire an attorney to help you petition the court to modify your divorce decree. You really need to get it the way you want it the first time, even if that requires hiring an attorney or sitting through a divorce consultation.
