Contested Divorce in Texas
Contact an Aggressive Spring Divorce Lawyer Today
Texas courts give all divorcing couples the opportunity to decide on the
terms of their divorce themselves, such as
child custody, property division, and other critical matters. When a couple cannot agree
on these terms, however, the court must step in to assess the couple's
circumstances and decide on the terms for them. This is known as a contested
divorce in Texas.
If you are facing a contested divorce, it is highly advised that you speak
with legal counsel immediately. At the

The Contested Divorce Process
In Texas, the divorce process begins when one member of the couple files
a Petition for Divorce with the court. When that happens, the other spouse
can receive legal notice several different ways. The non-filing spouse
can then provide an answer expressing that they do not agree with the
terms of the divorce and wish to contest them.
Once a divorce petition is contested in Texas:
- The court may issue a temporary order considering child custody, alimony,
etc. for the duration of the divorce.
- The couple enters a discovery phase, in which they receive each other's
financial information and other relevant documentation.
- The court will require an attempt at mediation to settle all disagreements
over the divorce terms.
- If mediation fails, there will be a trial where a judge will assess the
couple's marriage and make a ruling on the divorce terms.
These are just the broad strokes of the contested divorce process. For
