An uncontested divorce is when neither party is objecting to the divorce. The two spouses are in agreement that a divorce is in their best interest, and they have no unresolved legal issues between them.
The first requirement that one party must have lived in Texas for a minimum of six months, and at least three months in the county where the divorce petition is filed. Uncontested divorces are most common with couples who have not been married very long, have not accumulated much property, and have no children.
Texas law requires those who are getting an uncontested divorce to meet certain criteria. At Almasri & Marzwanian Law Group, we will work with you to determine if you meet the qualifications and if an uncontested divorce is in your best interest. The most important qualification is that you both want a divorce and believe you are in agreement about division of assets.
You do not qualify for an uncontested divorce if you are involved in a bankruptcy proceeding. Also, you should not have retirement benefits that need to be divided, and neither party should be seeking spousal support.
