Divorce is never easy for any couple in Texas, but not everyone is looking to "get back" at their ex through drawn out litigation. In many instances, couples in Houston and elsewhere across Texas that are choosing to part paths have children and both want to play a significant role in their children's lives. Further, raising kids is expensive and prolonged litigation in a family courtroom often means a major expense.
Accordingly, many couples in Texas will choose to agree on all the terms of their divorce outside of a courtroom in an uncontested or no-fault divorce. An experienced uncontested divorce attorney in Texas can assist a couple in working out arrangements regarding child custody and visitation, property division, debts and anything else involved in ironing out the parting of ways.
Simply because the divorce will be uncontested, however, does not necessarily mean that the splitting couple will agree exactly on every issue right from the start. In order to resolve these issues quickly and peaceably, it is important to refrain to issuing fault, it is important to remain realistic in expectations and propositions, and it is wise for each party to be prepared with a few different compromises on various issues.
It is important to recognize that each divorce is unique. Accordingly, it often benefits a couple to seek out a lawyer that will remain sensitive to this fact when a couple is divorcing in Texas.
