In provisional data statistics published in February 2009 by the CDC/National Center for Health Statistics in their National Vital Statistical Report, there were approximately 40,000 cases of divorce in the first half of 2008. These statistics don’t reflect, however, how many of these divorces were contested or uncontested, nor the grounds for the divorce.

Contested and Uncontested Divorce in Houston

Divorces in Texas are either contested or uncontested. In contested divorces, the parties cannot agree on getting a divorce, or on issues such as child custody and child support, alimony, etc.

In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree to the divorce and are in agreement of divorce issues. In any case, you need to specify what the grounds for the divorce are.

Reasons to Hire a Divorce Lawyer in Houston

  • Divorce isn’t as simple as filling out papers, or downloading divorce forms from the Internet. Filing paperwork yourself is frustrating.  An attorney can obtain the best possible terms for your child support, custody, and alimony.
  • Marriage dissolution in Texas is different than in other states. A divorce attorney can explain low divorce property division, spousal support, and divorce laws are handled in Texas and Harris County.
  • There is no such thing as a legal separation in Houston. An attorney whose practice is predominantly matrimonial and divorce law will explain the differences between annulment and divorce, and what proof you need for the grounds of your separation.
  • Although the Texas District Clerk’s Office will be able to direct you, they won’t know the particulars of your divorce and be familiar with your family members, assets, and debt.
