Qualifications for an Uncontested Divorce

To file for an uncontested divorce, you must meet certain requirements.

These include:

  • 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.
