Uncontested Divorce Attorney Serving El Paso, Midland & Odessa
Going through a divorce can be a difficult time in one’s life. The separation causes a lot of stress and can be difficult, but things can become more difficult if there are a lot of disagreements in finances and property division. If there is an agreement on the reason for the divorce and all of the financial pieces of the divorce, then there is a path forward to getting an uncontested divorce.
If you have made the decision to file for a divorce, it is important that you consult with a family law attorney. When working with our law firm, you will have an experienced legal team who has extensive litigation experience and that will use that experience to put you in the best position possible in your family law matter. We offer scheduled consultations to help you determine what your next steps need to be.
Do I Qualify For An Uncontested Divorce?
The first step in going through an uncontested divorce process is signing an agreement that skips the trial process and verifies that you and your spouse agree to all of the divorce related issues. If you meet the criteria below, then you will qualify for an uncontested divorce in Texas:
- Both spouses agree to the reason for the divorce.
- The two parties do not have children under the age of 18.
- Neither party is in an ongoing bankruptcy case.
- Both parties agree to end the marriage.
- Neither party is seeking alimony or spousal support.
If you do not meet any of these qualifications mentioned above, then you will not qualify for an uncontested divorce and will need to prepare for a contested divorce. If you have children under the age of 18, the state of Texas requires the court system to determine the child custody, child support and visitation schedule.
What Happens In An Uncontested Divorce?
Uncontested divorces tend to be less expensive than a contested divorce. The process is much more streamlined and can be executed in a timely manner. Even though an uncontested divorce is much more streamlined, it is still common practice to hire an attorney to handle your side of the divorce. Having an attorney will make sure you execute on all of your responsibilities in a timely manner and will help you if the process becomes contested and if you will need to go to trial for the divorce.
