Qualifications for Uncontested Divorce in Texas
Uncontested divorce is reserved for couples who agree on all the terms of their divorce. That means there is no need for courtroom intervention to settle matters like alimony, child custody, property division, and so on.
There are also a number of other requirements for an uncontested divorce:
- The spouses must not be in the middle of a bankruptcy
- The spouses must not be seeking alimony (spousal maintenance)
- The spouses must not jointly own real estate
- The spouses must not have retirement funds to divide
- The spouses must have no current children together under the age of 18
Generally speaking, uncontested divorces are quicker, less expensive, and far more amicable than other divorces. If you and your spouse meet these requirements and are mutually ready to end your marriage, then an uncontested divorce may be possible. Call the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, PLLC to start exploring your options today. It is advised that even in an uncontested divorce, both parties retain their own counsel to ensure that this process is completed as thoroughly and efficiently as possible.
