WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR AN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE?
If you and your spouse have reached an agreement over the terms of your divorce on your own, or if you have very few issues to work through, you might qualify for an uncontested divorce. In Texas, you and your spouse must have also lived in the state for six months.
Other requirements include having no:
- Minor children
- Ongoing bankruptcy cases
- Jointly owned property
- Retirement benefits to divide
In addition to these requirements, neither spouse can seek alimony during an uncontested divorce.
