Texas Uncontested Divorce: An Overview

If you’re unsure whether you want to hire an attorney for your uncontested divorce just yet, that’s okay. In the meantime, we’ve included some basic information below about uncontested divorces in Texas to help you get up to speed while considering your options. 

What Is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses agree to all material terms and issues to be decided in terminating the marriage. The issues that must be addressed include: 

Once the parties agree to all terms of the divorce, they will submit their written settlement agreement to the court, which will review and enter it as a final decree and binding order of the court. 

No-Fault Divorce

When filing for divorce, formally referred to as “dissolution of marriage” in Texas, the parties must state the underlying grounds for the divorce. This is true even when the divorce is uncontested. 

Specific grounds for divorce are based on either spouse’s fault or wrongful conduct, such as adultery, abandonment, or cruelty. However, many uncontested divorces are considered “no-fault” divorces, where neither spouse accuses the other of any wrongdoing as the grounds for the dissolution of the marriage. 

In these scenarios, “insupportability” is commonly cited as the most appropriate grounds for an uncontested divorce. Under Texas Family Code section 6.001, insupportability is defined as a situation in which the marriage has “become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marital relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”   

Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce

There are several benefits to pursuing an uncontested divorce as opposed to a contested divorce. Below are some notable advantages of an uncontested divorce: 

  • Relatively quick resolution time, 
  • Less adversarial, 
  • More cost-effective due to less litigious nature, and
  • Reduced stress on the parties. 

That said, an uncontested divorce may not be right for everyone. Thus, if you’re not sure whether you should pursue an uncontested divorce, speak with a family law attorney in your area to discuss your options in more detail. 

How an Experienced Uncontested Divorce Attorney Can Help Your Case

Many people mistakenly believe that because the divorce is uncontested, they do not need an attorney to represent them throughout the process. However, this is not necessarily the case. Although you technically are not required to hire an attorney for your uncontested divorce in Texas, having an experienced family law and divorce attorney can be a valuable asset to your case.  

Even in an uncontested divorce, the parties must still follow the proper timeline and legal procedures, file necessary paperwork with the court, and have their settlement agreement approved and entered as a final order of the court to finalize the divorce. Thus, there are still many legal hoops to jump through, all of which an attorney can assist. 

For example, an experienced San Antonio family law and uncontested divorce lawyer can help you: 

  • Understand your legal rights and obligations; 
  • Comply with applicable rules, timelines, and court procedures;     
  • Classify and assess your separate and marital property; 
  • Negotiate, draft, and review potential settlement terms with your spouse; 
  • Draft and file any necessary paperwork; 
  • Appear in court to advocate on your behalf when necessary; and 
  • Address any post-divorce disputes that may arise, such as enforcement or modification of any custody or support arrangements ordered by the court. 

Uncontested divorces can certainly be less complicated and litigious than contested divorce proceedings. Even so, the fact remains that an uncontested divorce is still a legal process with many requirements that must be carefully followed. Thus, having an experienced legal professional in your corner can save you significant time, expense, and stress in the long run.

Superb Law Firm

The decision to end my 25-year marriage was not an easy one, but hiring the Ramos Law Group was. From the initial consultation to the execution of the Divorce Decree everyone at the firm displayed the utmost professionalism and I was treated as if I was their only client. My attorney Lindsey, always provided precise legal guidance, was usually one step ahead of the opposing counsel, and had a superb understanding of how things would play out in the court room. Additionally, whenever my case needed a little extra horsepower, Mary provided that "surge" to keep things on track.

Divorce Attorney

"I received excellent advice and representation from Ms. Lindsey Lewis. She kept me updated at every step of the process, and I never felt as if my case was set aside. I would hire The Ramos Law Group in the future. "

Highly recommend

"I started my divorce with a lawyer who was not very responsive. My divorce case was complicated and needed more laborious scrutiny. Since the case was not moving forward I had to switch lawyers. Made the switch to Ramos Law group. Since the very first day Mary and her team have been very efficient and meticulous. Since the case was complicated the team had to go through myriads of pages in discovery. I was pleased with the legal team that helped us handle the paperwork in a very timely manner. All my questions were answered very promptly. The relay of information was easy with their software system. We finally had a law firm that we could trust. My divorce was finalized and I only have Mary and her team to thank for going through a difficult divorce. I would highly recommend the Ramos law group for their help and support for getting my life back on track. "
