If your marriage is over, yet you are able to come to terms with your spouse on key issues, an uncontested divorce is probably your best option.

Go here to learn more about the firm.

How Long Will My Uncontested Divorce Take?

Texas law mandates a minimum waiting period of 60 days between filing for and finalizing a divorce. While this is the minimum period, additional steps in the process could lengthen the proceeding beyond two months in some divorces.

Uncontested divorces offer the greatest chance for an easy and efficient process. With both spouses agreeing on all matters, including custody, alimony, asset division, and any other relevant decisions, the process can be finalized immediately after the waiting period. The process can conclude without a trial and typically without even necessitating a court appearance so long as the court agrees that the terms the spouses agreed upon are fair.

Dedicated Advocacy for Uncontested Divorce in Pearland

If you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce, it enables you to maintain control of your own circumstances, as opposed to letting the court decide in a litigated divorce. When disputes arise regarding the terms of the divorce, there are options to settle them outside of court.

In a collaborative divorce, the parties and their attorneys come together in a conference to discuss the issues, and make agreed-upon decisions in an open, honest atmosphere. If disputes still exist and important issues remain undecided, the parties and their counsel can seek resolution in meetings facilitated by a neutral, third-party mediator.

Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, and whether you come to terms with your spouse through collaboration, mediation, or litigation, it is essential to have an experienced attorney representing your interests. Our firm can help you settle the terms of your divorce, and we will aggressively fight for the best possible outcome for you.
