What Is an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce (sometimes referred to as an agreed divorce) is a divorce in which the divorcing parties agree on the terms of their divorce settlement and do not need their case litigated in divorce court. In Texas, uncontested divorce is considered a simplified divorce process.
Some of the requirements to file for uncontested divorce include:
- The couple must have lived in Texas for a minimum of six months
- The couple must have lived in the county of filing for a minimum of 90 days
- The couple doesn’t have minor children
- Both parties agree on all divorce terms
- Both parties agree to file for a no-fault divorce
If you and your spouse share children, you will not qualify for an uncontested divorce in Texas. Additionally, if you disagree, even on just one issue, you will have to file for a contested divorce. To find out if you qualify for an uncontested divorce, reach out to our attorney. We can discuss your situation and help you determine what type of divorce you should file for.
The Uncontested Divorce Process in Texas
Because uncontested divorces utilize a simplified process, a final judgment of divorce is often achieved much faster than a contested divorce. In fact, an uncontested divorce may be finalized immediately after the required 60-day waiting period. Consequently, uncontested divorces tend to be less expensive because the couple spends less time preparing for and appearing in court, thereby incurring fewer legal and court fees.
Before a judge signs your Final Decree of Divorce, they will review your divorce agreement to ensure that it is lawful and reasonable. Even though the uncontested divorce process is simplified, it is still recommended that you work with a skilled attorney for several reasons.
The benefits of working with an attorney during your uncontested divorce include:
- Professional guidance throughout the process
- Skilled representation when negotiating with your former spouse
- Help with all documents, paperwork, and court filings
- Assurance that your best interests are being prioritized
