At Brian Andrade Family Law, we understand that divorce can be a difficult and emotionally challenging process, even when both parties are in agreement about the terms of the separation. An uncontested divorce, also known as a “simple divorce” or “agreed divorce,” occurs when both spouses agree on all the major issues related to their separation, such as property division, child custody, and support arrangements. Our experienced family law attorneys are here to guide you through the uncontested divorce process, ensuring that your rights and interests are protected every step of the way.

Benefits of an
Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorces offer several advantages over traditional, contested divorces.

Faster Resolution:

Because both parties agree on the terms of the divorce, the process can be completed much more quickly than a contested divorce, which may require multiple court appearances and lengthy negotiations.

Lower Costs:

Uncontested divorces typically involve less legal work and fewer court appearances, which can result in significantly lower attorney’s fees and court costs compared to a contested divorce.

Reduced Stress:

By avoiding the adversarial nature of a contested divorce, an uncontested divorce can help minimize the emotional strain and conflict often associated with the end of a marriage.

The Uncontested Divorce Process


Reaching Agreements:

 The first step in an uncontested divorce is for both spouses to agree on all the major issues related to their separation, including property division, debt allocation, child custody and visitation, child support, and spousal support (alimony), if applicable.

Serving the Divorce Papers:

After filing, the divorce papers must be formally served on the other spouse, who will have an opportunity to review and sign the documents, indicating their agreement with the terms of the divorce.

Finalizing the Divorce:

Once the waiting period has elapsed and all required documents have been filed with the court, a judge will review the case and, if everything is in order, will sign a judgment of dissolution, finalizing the divorce.

Preparing and Filing Divorce Papers:

nce agreements have been reached, our attorneys will prepare the necessary divorce documents, including the petition for dissolution of marriage, summons, and any required attachments or declarations. These papers will be filed with the appropriate court.

Waiting Period:

In Taxas, there is a mandatory 60-day waiting period from the date the divorce papers are served before the divorce can be finalized. This waiting period is intended to provide both parties with time to reflect on their decision and ensure that divorce is the right choice for them.
