Support During a Divorce or Separation

Our Pasadena divorce attorneys want to show you that divorce doesn’t have to be a completely negative situation. If you aren’t happy in your marriage anymore and can’t see things getting better, then a divorce could be an entirely good thing for your entire family. Yet it is understandable if you are hesitant to end your marriage after years of enjoying it.

When you aren’t certain if divorce is the best solution to an unhappy marriage, talk to us about a legal separation. Often called a “trial divorce,” a legal separation lets you and your spouse agree upon living situations and responsibilities like you would in a divorce but without officially dissolving your marriage. After a year or more in a legal separation, it should be easier for you to decide if you want to proceed with a divorce or if you would like to try to make your marriage work again.

Is Your Divorce Contested or Uncontested?

Once your spouse is handed the divorce papers or you have been handed them, your divorce will soon become contested or uncontested. What is the difference between these two types of divorce, and does that difference matter much?

Let us help you understand and handle these two types of divorces:

  • Contested: A divorce petition will outline what the petitioner wants to be done in the divorce. If the respondent spouse – the one who is served the divorce papers – doesn’t like every proposed arrangement in the petition, then they will have to reject it. At that point, the divorce is contested. Mediation, negotiation, or litigation will become necessary to solve disagreements. 
  • Uncontested: If the respondent spouse accepts the proposed arrangements in the divorce petition, then there is no reason to challenge it. At that point, the divorce is uncontested. You shouldn’t sign a divorce petition immediately just because you aren’t contesting it, though. Let our Pasadena divorce lawyers look it over for any discrepancies that you might have missed.

Grounds for Divorce in Texas

If you are the spouse who is starting the divorce petition, then you will need to list your reason for wanting to file for divorce. In legal terms, the reason is the “grounds” for divorce. Technically, you don’t need to cite a specific reason for divorce. You can just say that you have “irreconcilable differences” or that your marriage is “irreparably broken,” and your divorce petition is legally valid. However, if you have a more specific reason for wanting to end your marriage, then it might be worth mentioning it.

In Texas, recognized grounds for divorce include:

  • Adultery
  • Cruelty
  • Abuse or domestic violence
  • Abandonment
  • Lengthy imprisonment
  • And more

Confide in our attorneys the reason why you want to file for divorce, and we can see if that reason should be used as grounds in the petition. For example, if your spouse was stealing community finances and using them without your knowledge, then we could use that as the basis of property division arguments in your divorce. The court could agree to award you a larger share of community property during equitable distribution processes to make up for the assets that your spouse has already stolen or misused.

Pasadena, Texas Divorce FAQ

Should I try to file for divorce before my spouse does?

Whether you are the petitioner or the respondent in a divorce doesn’t make a difference to the court. The only reason why you might want to be the petitioner is that you know you want a divorce and want to get it moving sooner than later.

Will my divorce take a while to complete?

A divorce case can take a few months to complete, or longer than a year, depending on the details that go into it. Also, your divorce can’t be finalized by the court unless 60 days have passed since the original petition was filed.

Is filing for divorce expensive?

In Texas, you can expect to pay around $300 for court filing fees for divorce (this amount is updated somewhat regularly by the state). At Hunt Law Firm, we keep our attorney fees competitive, so other costs in a divorce case remain fair. We never spring surprise fees on our clients, either. You will know the cost to hire our top-tier team before you sign anything.
