Many websites will have you believe that, when you and your spouse agree on all divorce terms, that achieving a divorce is as simple as filling out a form or two. In reality, however, it is highly recommended that the couple seek legal advice on this matter. Even uncontested divorces need a sharp and thorough eye to ensure that all the proper documentation is included in their filing.

Additional documentation for an uncontested divorce is needed to:

  • Address retirement plans and savings
  • Properly decide home ownership and real estate matters
  • Establish child custody and support

While it is possible that the couple may not have to appear in court for an uncontested divorce, your filing will still be reviewed by a judge. If he or she finds that there is a lack of necessary information, or that matters are not properly addressed, complications can arise, and the couple may be called to court for clarification.


Divorce is never pleasant and always a sensitive matter for all parties involved. Uncontested divorces, however, can potentially allow both spouses to move on with their lives with as little pain and conflict as possible. To do this, however, requires experienced legal vigilance and understanding of a Houston divorce attorney to ensure your filing meets all of the State of Texas' requirements.
