The end of a marriage can be stressful and challenging if you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse do not agree on the terms of the divorce decree. Some of the most common points of disagreement include:

  • property division
  • debt assessment and division
  • legal and physical custody of children
  • child support
  • medical and childcare expenses
  • spousal support
  • prenuptial agreement analysis

If you and your spouse can agree on these issues, you may be able to obtain an uncontested divorce and more quickly get back to a normal life.

How to Obtain an Uncontested Divorce

There are two methods by which you may be able to obtain an uncontested divorce. The first option is an agreement by you and your spouse to the terms of your Decree of Divorce. Your spouse will sign a Waiver of Citation or Answer document and will be willing to sign the decree itself. Your second option occurs when your spouse does not file an official answer to your divorce petition after being served through the Official Service Process method.

Once it is determined that you have an uncontested divorce, you will then need to have the Divorce Decree drafted and other paperwork completed by an experienced Houston, Texas divorce attorney such as Deborah L.Thompson, Attorney at Law. Afterward, you will present these documents to the court. The judge will review your agreements, sign your Decree of Divorce, and grant your divorce. Once this is complete and your child support account has been setup—if applicable—you will be ready to begin the next stage of your life.
