Contested and Uncontested Divorce Options
As a practical definition, an uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses in the marriage come to a full and final agreement on all issues relating to the marriage including debt distribution and other financial obligations including retirement benefits, division of assets and property, and temporary spousal support.
Often on quite the opposite end of the spectrum, a contested divorce is when a couple is unable to come to any agreement on one or all issues regarding the dissolution of their marriage, even under the advisement of legal counsel.
Uncontested Divorce Lawyers Can Save Time and Money
It is true that an uncontested divorce has the potential to save you time as you are not necessarily waiting for your case to go to court.
If you choose this method, you may hire an attorney by the hour, costing you less and avoiding the need for a retainer fee.
Uncontested does not mean the process is easier for a couple. It requires you to work together with your pending ex-spouse, making major decisions and agreeing 100% on every detail, in order to avoid battling over every minute issue in court.
If a minor child or children were the product of a marriage, there may be reason for the custody and support portions of the divorce to be handled by the court, thereby making it contested.
It is all predicated on what is in the best interest of the child(ren).
Common Law Divorce Cases
The state of Texas does recognize the common law marriage. In such cases, three requirements must be met:
- A couple must live in Texas.
- A couple must openly declare they are married to each other, even though no license has been filed or official ceremony has taken place.
- These acts must occur simultaneously.
If a common law marriage is implied but one of the parties disputes the claim, a common law divorce may be necessary to settle the division of property and assets as well as determining matters of child custody, visitation, and child support.

Consider a Divorce Mediation Lawyer
When a couple has mutually determined they no longer wish to be married, a divorce mediation may be the answer to help iron out the details.

Mediation also narrows down the details of child custody and support without arguing in front of the kids.
Property Division in a Divorce
Division of a household and its belongings is likely the most difficult and painstaking part of any divorce. Couples tend to get greedy when it comes to the thought of separating from their precious assets. Often even more upsetting to one or the other individual is the thought of the former partner getting “their” stuff.
Typically, items belonging to a spouse prior to the marriage will stay with that person. Only property acquired during the marriage will be considered.

Your Property Division Lawyer in a Community Property State
Texas, being a community property state, attempts to divide assets accumulated during a marriage in a “just and right” way. This does not mean an even 50/50 split. Whether gained by a husband, wife, or both spouses, there will be questions to determine who will take possession upon the final decree.
