What is an uncontested in Spring, Texas Divorce?

In uncontested divorce in Texas, both spouses have reached an agreement on all divorce issues which include:

  1. both spouses agree to be divorced
  2. parental decision-making responsibilities, such as medical decisions, educational decisions, and psychological decisions for the children, etc.
  3. parental visitation
  4. the amount and duration of child support
  5. the amount and duration of any spousal support (alimony)
  6. the division of property and debts

If spouses can agree on all issues, the uncontested divorce attorney’s task involves drafting the necessary paperwork, waiting for the time period required by Texas law, proving up the divorce decree in court, and then finalizing the divorce.

In many meetings with potential clients, they often tell me they will have an Uncontested Divorce. I then ask the parties if they agree on all the above issues. I then ask if they agree on all the issues. Usually, they agree on most but not all issues. In such cases, I inform them that their divorce is not uncontested if they contest one or more issues.

For example, if your spouse is not even willing to sign a waiver of service saying that they have received a copy of the Petition for Divorce (document asking the Divorce Court to grant a Divorce), then it is not an uncontested divorce. In an Uncontested Divorce, both spouses need to cooperate in all aspects of getting a divorce.

Advantages of Uncontested Divorce

Cost is the biggest advantage of uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce in Spring, Texas that stays uncontested is almost always the least expensive way of getting divorced.

Lower cost is not the only advantage of an uncontested divorce in Spring, TX. Uncontested divorce also helps to minimize conflict between divorcing spouses.

Divorcing spouses reach agreements more privately in uncontested divorce. They conduct these agreements and discussions out of court, away from the public eye, rather than in a courtroom. While the agreement gets filed with the court, the process itself remains private.

Uncontested Divorces in Texas typically conclude faster than contested divorce. IIf parties agree on all issues, they only need to prepare the necessary paperwork. Then, they wait for 60 days, the mandatory waiting period in Texas before divorcing. After this period, they can prove up the divorce in court, leading to a judge granting the divorce.

It may take longer than 60 days even if the parties agreed, depending upon the amount of property involved and the customization that the parties want in their divorce decree. An example would be if the parties wanted a specialized visitation schedule for a spouse who has an usual work schedule such as someone in the military or an airline pilot. This may take more time for an uncontested divorce attorney to draft than the regular Texas Standard Possession Order.
