Pursuing an Agreed Divorce or "Uncontested" Divorce in Texas
Many couples seek to have their marriage dissolved through an Uncontested or Agreed Divorce. This option is available to couples who share dependent children and substantial assets, as well as those who want spousal support to be part of the resolution. An Agreed Divorce or Uncontested Divorce can also include child custody and child support orders.
If you and your spouse can reach an agreement on all outstanding issues, including custody, support, and property division, this might be a good route to choose. If there are only a few things that need to be worked out, you may be able to complete an agreed divorce through negotiation with the guidance of your attorney, or through an alternative dispute resolution method such as mediation.
Qualifications for an Uncontested Divorce
To file for an uncontested divorce, you must meet certain requirements.
- Either you or your spouse has lived in Texas for at least six months; and
- In the county where you file for at least 90 days prior.
An uncontested Texas divorce can only be filed on a “no-fault” basis. This means neither of you has to prove any marital misconduct on the part of the other. No fault in Texas falls under “insupportability,” which means that the marriage has irretrievably failed with no prospect of reconciliation.
You can also file a no-fault divorce if you and your spouse have lived separate and apart without cohabitation for a minimum of three years.
The process can then proceed, which includes filing the right forms that apply to your situation; our firm can provide the assistance you need with this aspect of your divorce.
