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.
