Uncontested Divorce

Child Custody Attorney • Move Away

If you and your spouse have an understanding of how marital property should be divided and how child custody should be determined in your Texas divorce, consider filing for an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce can be quicker and less costly than traditional divorce in which the parties are legal opponents -- provided that all goes smoothly. It is not uncommon for separating spouses to express willingness to cooperate for the sake of facilitating a smooth divorce process -- only to have one or the other later decide to "go for all they can get" after the reality of divorce sinks in.

Bell can help you understand the law with regard to uncontested divorce, and help you determine whether it is a viable option in your case. Contact the law firm by phone or e-mail.

Mr. Bell represents only one spouse, and the other typically represents himself or herself. Once the two signs a mutually agreed-upon order that sets forth the terms of the divorce, there is a mandatory 60-day cooling off period. If there are children of the marriage, both parents will have to take a parenting class.
