Divorce in Texas
In Texas, a divorce can either be contested or uncontested. Uncontested divorces, usually based on irreconcilable differences, are faster, easier, and less expensive than those that must be resolved by a judge, which can take many months of court hearings. In an uncontested divorce, both parties have agreed on all of the issues that must be resolved to obtain a final decree. This agreement is then submitted to the court for final approval.
These issues can include:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Alimony/spousal support
- How the marital property will be divided
- How marital debts will be divided
- What will happen with the marital home and other owned real estate
- What will happen to the family-owned business, if pertinent
- Tax planning
- Division of pensions, IRAs, and 401(k)s
In complex divorce cases, parties may have many disagreements over these matters, which can be resolved with their respective attorneys or through other forms of mediation. When these negotiation methods fail, the issues will be decided by a judge based on evidence presented. Our firm can also strongly represent your best interests in a contested divorce.
Understanding the Different Types of Divorce
Divorce can be a complex and emotionally challenging process. It's important to understand that there are different types of divorce, each with its own legal requirements and implications. At Willeford, Duff & Council, our experienced divorce lawyers in Greenville, TX are well-versed in all types of divorce and can guide you through the process.
Here are some common types of divorce:
- Uncontested Divorce: This is the most amicable type of divorce where both parties agree on all terms, including child custody, division of assets, and spousal support.
- Contested Divorce: In a contested divorce, the spouses cannot agree on one or more key issues, and the court may need to intervene to make decisions on their behalf.
- No-Fault Divorce: Texas is a no-fault divorce state, which means that a divorce can be granted without proving that either party did anything wrong. It simply requires stating that the marriage has become insupportable due to discord or conflict.
- Fault Divorce: In some cases, a divorce may be based on fault grounds, such as adultery, cruelty, abandonment, or felony conviction.
