Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

There are generally two types of divorce in Texas: contested and uncontested. Uncontested divorces are those in which the couple agrees to all terms of their divorce settlement. These cases tend to be resolved more quickly and are less costly than a contested divorce. If a couple disagrees on even one aspect of their divorce, they must go through the contested divorce process.

Common divorce issues that couples may struggle with:

  • Property division
  • Debt division
  • Spousal support
  • Child custody
  • Child support

If your divorce is uncontested, it may be finalized in as few as 60 days (Texas has a 60-day waiting period requirement for most divorces). However, contested divorces tend to take much longer and often require court litigation and/or mediation. If you are going through a contested divorce, you can expect it to take from six months to a year to be finalized.

No matter what type of divorce process you go through, it is always recommended that you work with an experienced, skilled divorce attorney like ours in Austin. Your attorney is an invaluable resource and can help represent you in court should your case need to be litigated.
