Houston Divorce Law Firm Explains: Uncontested and Contested Divorce
Choosing to divorce and separate from your spouse requires planning. It also comes with emotional, religious, financial, and child-related issues. Depending on your situation, and the agreement between you and your spouse, you can file a petition for a contested or uncontested divorce.
You can file for divorce in Texas if you or your spouse has resided in the state for six months or longer, or in the county for 90 days or longer. If you are in the military and are stationed in Texas, you can assume the same residency requirement.
Is your divorce a mutual consent? If it is, and you are in agreement as to children’s needs, and the division of assets and debt, then you can file an uncontested divorce claiming the marriage is insupportable with no hopes of reconciliation. Additionally, if your spouse has abandoned you, you can file an uncontested divorce.
