Uncontested divorces tend to pass through divorce courts quite quickly. In order to obtain an uncontested divorce, the couple must not only agree to a division of debt, finances, and property but must also reach a compromise in child custody and spousal maintenance or alimony. This can be granted without a trial. The separating couple is also required to have resided in Texas for at least six months and the county for at least three months.
The paperwork associated with the divorce process can be found online or physical copies can be found at your local courthouse. Each county in Texas has individual requirements that need to be met. Unless you have a thorough comprehension of the law, you may not know which divorce papers you need to file or understand how to complete them. With the aid of a divorce lawyer, these matters can be prepared quickly and accurately.
Uncontested Divorce Settlements
Uncontested divorces can cost as little as $300. Nonetheless, Texas law dictates certain child support guidelines. For example, even if there is an agreement between spouses, child support must still be awarded according to the guideline. A predetermined amount of support, however, can be agreed on by the parties. The parties can also agree on how the payment is made.
The health insurance of the children must also be clear in the divorce decree. If the two parties cannot reach a clear-cut understanding, they may resolve it through mediation without a judge’s interference. During this process, couples may decide to change their uncontested divorce to a contested divorce should they find themselves unable to reach an agreement. Mediators and family law attorneys are intended to form absolute agreements with respect to the rights of each individual.
