Divorce in Texas
Did You Know?
How Do I?
More than 40% of all granted Texas divorces are uncontested divorces.Divorces are generally referred to as contested or uncontested. An uncontested divorce is when the divorcing couple has reached an agreement on all issues. These issues include the division of property and debts. If there are minor or dependent children, then the parties have also agreed on conservatorship (custody), visitation, and child support. In a contested divorce, the couple is not in agreement on at least one of these issues, and is asking the court to decide the disputed issues for them.
Nearly half of the divorces filed are initiated by individuals not attorneys.The number of individuals who choose to represent themselves in court, called “pro se”, has increased drastically over the last few years. Most couples who have agreed on all issues in their divorce want to avoid paying thousands of dollars in legal fees when they already have an agreement and don’t want to litigate issues in court.
Fill-in-the-blank Divorce Decrees are often rejected by Texas Courts.“Fill-in-the-blank” divorce decrees typically do not allow for the specificity that is required in a Final Decree of Divorce, especially those involving children. Many Texas courts will reject these types of decrees, stating that they are unenforceable and lack the specific language required to constitute a legally sound decree of divorce. This leaves the individual representing him or herself without a divorce decree, and unable to obtain a divorce.
The amount of child support to be paid must be in accordance with the support guidelines.Child support is based on the number of children and the income of the parent paying support. The child support amount to be paid must be in accordance with a specific calculation outlined in the Texas Family Code, unless good cause can be shown that would require the court to change the amount and make a finding that deviating from the guidelines is in the child’s best interest. These circumstances are rare.
