Filing for Uncontested Divorce in Denton County?

Get Experienced Counsel for Your Uncontested Divorce in Texas

For most people, divorce is a stressful experience. However, for others, it can be easier to negotiate the terms of their separation. An uncontested divorce is possible when spouses can reach agreements about the details of the divorce without going to trial. These divorces move more quickly through the courts and tend to be much less expensive than those requiring litigation.

At the Haugen Law Firm, our Denton County uncontested divorce attorney offers legal services to parties that represent themselves at reduced rates. If you are unable to reach an agreement, we offer mediation to unrepresented parties. This process could save you thousands of dollars in unnecessary legal expenses.

Is my Situation Eligible for Uncontested Divorce?

Uncontested divorces are available to couples who have no more disagreements about the basic divorce issues. Normally, if a couple is able to agree on child custody, support, and division of property, we can assist them in completing the required paperwork and finalize the divorce without a great deal of expense to the parties. If the parties are close to an agreement, a half-day mediation may be enough to assist you in reaching a final agreement.

What are the Advantages to Uncontested Divorce?

One of the greatest benefits of an uncontested divorce is that it saves time and money. Additionally, the level of anxiety is normally much lower for parties that are able to reach an agreement without litigating the case. Often, the thing that delays most divorces, is a lack of cooperation and compromise. If both spouses can agree early on a resolution, this means less time in court and fewer legal fees. To further assist the parties to reach agreements, many couples hire a Denton County uncontested divorce lawyer to be a mediator to facilitate the process and memorialize the agreement, so it will be binding to the parties. Mediation can often speed the process along and keep the couple on track.

What are the Disadvantages?

The more complicated your situation, the more you may want to consider alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or collaborative family law. Hiring a professional can save you from making a mistake that you will later regret. While an uncontested divorce could save you time and money, it might be wise to hire a skilled lawyer if you are unable to agree on custody of the children, division of property, or whether a party will receive spousal support. Additionally, if you will be dividing tax-deferred accounts, it is imperative that it is done correctly to avoid a substantial tax liability. If you doubt your ability to file and manage your case, hiring a professional can lower the anxiety you will face.
