Divorce can be as challenging or as easy as one can restrain their emotions and consider the entire process a business transaction. Failure to remove emotions can result in high attorney fees and an extended divorce process. For more information visit our site: http://www.ramosfamilylaw.com.
An uncontested divorce is the quickest and the least expensive way to get divorced in Texas. In this type of divorce both parties must be able to remove the emotional side of divorce and treat the process as a business transaction without the need of extensive litigation.
To quality for an uncontested Divorce both parties must be in agreement with all of the following terms:
- Agree to be divorced
- Have a solid agreement on all issues
- Child custody, Visitation and Access
- Child support
- Division of community assets
- Division of retirement funds
- Agree to use one attorney
- Voluntarily sign all legal documents without service on any party
Simply put, a Contested Divorce situation exists when one or more requirements listed above are absent. Furthermore, an uncontested divorce can be finalized on the 61st day after filing the original petition for divorce. This time includes the required 60 day cooling off period required by the state of Texas.
In most cases, the uncontested divorce process is completed at a fraction of the cost of a contested case. An uncontested case without children, real estate and retirement can be accomplished with our law firm for as little at $800.
To get both a cheap and quick divorce, both parties must be able to exclude emotions from the entire process. If I were to reflect on the hundreds of clients that I represented I would say that the cost and length of time boils down to emotions. I’ve seen people spend several thousand dollars fighting over only a few hundred dollars over emotions. When clients treat the divorce as a business transation they tend to only spend a fraction of the cost of a highly contested divorce. This is also true with high value and complex estates.
