All our attorneys attend the top training seminars, review the latest research, and study case law developments to determine the most effective strategies for our clients. As Cypress divorce lawyers, we use our experience in complex family law matters such as child custody disputes and high-asset property divisions to provide excellent legal guidance. Divorce issues are rarely routine, but we have the experience and insight needed to navigate your case, no matter how complicated it might be.

Divorce or Separation?

When the going gets rough with your spouse, you might question if you should remain married. Ending a marriage isn’t a negative thing if it means everyone ends up happier for it. But does that mean you should divorce your spouse, or arrange a legal separation?

A divorce officially dissolves a marriage under a court order. The important aspects of that marriage like property division and child support must be considered and decided when the divorce is finalized. A legal separation is similar to divorce in that it sets the expectations for these important aspects of the marriage, but it doesn’t officially dissolve the marriage. Some see it as a “trial divorce” that will make the official divorce easier if it is desired but also makes it easier to restore the marriage if that would be better.

Contested & Uncontested Divorces

When going through a divorce, you will want to keep things as peaceful as possible, if not for your sanity’s sake, then for that of your family like any children you have. Of course, amicable discussions aren’t always possible in a divorce. Sometimes, matters get heated, and disagreements escalate to arguments. The difference between being able to cooperate with your soon-to-be ex-spouse and feeling like you need to argue with them can influence the overall divorce process significantly, too.

A divorce will be considered one of the two following types:

  • Contested: If the spouse who receives the divorce petition from the other doesn’t completely agree with everyone in the petition, then the divorce is contested. When a divorce becomes contested, it doesn’t have to stay that way. Negotiations can help find a middle ground that makes both spouses happy. Although, if no mediation works and there are important disagreements to settle, then the divorce could be headed to trial.
  • Uncontested: If the spouse who receives the divorce petition sees no need to make a change, then the divorce is uncontested. An uncontested divorce avoids arguments and legal challenges, but you might still need a lawyer to handle one. We recommend letting our Cypress divorce attorneys review the divorce petition before you sign it, just in case there’s something in there that puts you at an unfair disadvantage that you otherwise wouldn’t have noticed.

Grounds for Divorce

What is the reason that you want to file for divorce? In some contexts, your reason can be called the “grounds” for divorce. Texas, like all other states, now allows people to file for divorce without specific grounds, or just by citing “irreconcilable differences.”

You can be more specific about the reason why you are filing for divorce, though. It could help your case to point out obvious flaws and misdoings of your spouse.

Grounds for divorce in Texas can include:

  • Adultery
  • Cruelty
  • Abuse
  • Abandonment
  • Felony conviction
  • And others

For example, a spouse who says they were a victim of domestic violence might want to include that in the divorce petition. This information would make the court reconsider if that spouse should have parenting rights, and it could even influence how the court distributes community property.

Benefits of Hiring a Divorce Lawyer

Anyone going through a divorce can benefit from the legal counsel of a divorce lawyer in at least one way or another.

Divorce FAQ

Does it matter who files for divorce first?

There is no advantage to filing for divorce (being the petitioner) or receiving the divorce papers (being the respondent). In a divorce case, the court is concerned about the divorce proceeding going fairly and based on the law. Who initially filed is not important in this regard.

How long does the divorce process take?

In Texas, a divorce can’t be finalized until at least 60 days have passed since the petition was filed. For this reason, a divorce will take at least two months. However, a two-month divorce would be very fast. Most divorces can take six months, a year, or longer, even if they are uncontested.

How much does it cost to file for divorce in Texas?

The filing court filing fees for a divorce in Texas usually cost about $300. The total cost of getting a divorce will be larger, though, as miscellaneous costs are factored in. We try to keep our attorney fees competitive, so our top-tier services are affordable for more people. You will also be told about our rates before hiring our attorneys, so you don’t get surprised by any costs.
