Divorce in Texas
There are two main types of divorce in Texas: Contested and uncontested divorce. Contested divorce means you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse disagree on one or more terms of your divorce agreement, while an uncontested divorce means both parties agree on all divorce issues.
The following are the most common issues in a divorce:
An uncontested divorce is simpler and more straightforward compared to a contested divorce, so the entire process will be much faster and less complicated. To qualify for an uncontested divorce in Texas, you and your spouse must have lived in the state for at least six months before filing a petition, not have any minor children, not share any property or businesses together, or have any retirement benefits that must be divided.
On the other hand, a contested divorce is more expensive and time consuming. Although this type of divorce can still be resolved outside of court through mediation, it is possible that the divorce can lead to court litigation, where a judge will make the final decision on all issues.
Going Through Divorce as a Parent
Divorce can be challenging for any couple, but especially when children are involved. In such cases, so much of the divorce revolves around seeing that the child’s wellbeing and best interests remain protected. This includes matters related to child custody, such as which parent the child will live with and when the other parent will have visitation time, as well as child support payments to ensure that the child’s financial needs are met. In situations where abuse and neglect are present, you will have the added pressure of dealing with Child Protective Services (CPS).
Our legal team is here to help you move through your divorce in the healthiest way possible, keeping the best interest of your child at the forefront. We can safeguard your child custody rights, help you achieve a fair child support settlement, and assist you with CPS actions.
