Five Requirements for Uncontested Divorce in Texas

An uncontested divorce can save time and money. It can also help a marriage end amicably and equitably without the often harsh and uncomfortable feelings that can accompany more contentious proceedings.

Contested divorce can become emotionally trying and exhausting – and there is never a guarantee that it will end in your favor. This makes uncontested divorce preferable under most circumstances. Preferable is not, however, always possible. Sugar Land divorce attorney Yasmin Kutty can help in both situations to help ensure you are treated fairly and given a voice during your proceedings.

Five Requirements for an Uncontested Divorce

In the state of Texas, there are five requirements that must be met to qualify for an uncontested divorce. The couple must:

  1. Agree to be divorced
  2. Reach an agreement on all divorce issues
  3. Utilize only one attorney
  4. Voluntarily sign all papers without service on any party
  5. Have a combined Estate Value of less than $250,000

If you do not meet these requirements, your divorce will need to go to mediation or a trial – even if you agree on asset division, child support and custody, and other important divorce considerations.

Choosing between contested and uncontested divorce may seem easy, but there can be snags and complications with both. This is but one reason it is so important to have a qualified and experienced Sugar Land family law attorney on your side from the moment you know your marriage is ending. Mrs. Kutty has two decades of experience helping families navigate the complexities of divorce. She welcomes an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your case, and to help you determine the most effective way to move forward.
