No-Fault Divorce in Texas
Texas is a “no-fault” state, which means that when citing grounds for divorce, you can either cite specific fault grounds or file a “no-fault divorce.” When you file a no-fault divorce, it means you are simply stating that both you and your spouse agree to split and that neither you nor your spouse is responsible for the split. In most cases, when spouses have an uncontested divorce, they will choose not to cite fault grounds.
Not only are no-fault divorces generally less hostile, but they are also generally less costly and time-consuming. This is because when spouses cite fault grounds, it gives the other spouse a chance to disagree or rebut the accusation made against them. Typically, it is best for all parties to simply file a no-fault divorce (whether they agree on divorce terms or not).
Finalizing an Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce is a type of no-fault divorce. Once you both choose not to cite fault grounds, you will then have to formally verify that you agree on the terms of your divorce. As long as you can both agree on the following issues, among other divorce-related issues, finalizing your divorce should be relatively simple:
If you find yourselves unable to agree on each of these terms during any part of the process, there is a very good chance that your uncontested divorce will become a contested one. Our firm is here to help, should any complications arise.
