Handling Your Divorce Outside of Court

Out-Of-Court Divorce Settlements & Agreements in TX

Taking a divorce to trial for a decision is always risky, stressful and can drag the process out for months, or even years, based upon the complexity of the case. There is nothing more uncomfortable than facing your former partner in court and engaging in a battle, with each party making accusations about the other.

In many cases, it is far better to negotiate an agreement outside of court. The agreements reached outside of court are often better, and more equitable, and also more likely to be adhered to as both parties were involved, rather than engaging in a no-holds-barred battle. An uncontested divorce is the easiest way to end a marriage. It is faster, less expensive and often better for everyone concerned, including the children.

A Simple, Uncontested Divorce in Texas

Want a simple divorce, without the stress, anxiety and the expense of a trial? An uncontested divorce may be the right solution for you. The process can include negotiations between your divorce lawyer and the opposing attorney, with each matter brought to a conclusion and a final settlement arranged. There is no need for court appearances, or the need to expose your personal matters in open court.

The agreement negotiated between the parties can vary widely, and there are a number of ways that assets and debts could be divided. You need the best deal you can get, and we know what it takes to apply the exact amount of pressure to help you to pursue your individual objectives.
