What Is An Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce, also called an agreed divorce, is best for couples who agree on the critical aspects of the divorce. This means that both parties must completely agree about child custody, property division, spousal support and any other relevant issues in the divorce.
An uncontested divorce has many benefits, including:
- Less expensive
- Amicable and peaceful
- Easier on your kids and family
To file for an uncontested divorce, you must still complete the appropriate forms and file them with the court. At Huckaby Hicks PLLC, we can help you with this process so that you can get through your divorce faster and with less stress.

- How much will my divorce cost?

Do you need a lawyer for an uncontested divorce in Texas?
While you can file for divorce on your own without an attorney, working with experienced representation has many benefits. When your children, property and financial future are at stake, you don’t want to make any mistakes or overlook details that can negatively impact you. An uncontested divorce still involves a lot of paperwork and legal filings that an experienced attorney can help you manage.
Do both parties need a lawyer in an uncontested divorce?
In Texas, you can file for an uncontested divorce without an attorney. However, both parties should still obtain separate representation. The same lawyer cannot represent both parties. If your spouse has obtained representation, it is in your best interests to also seek legal guidance.
How long does an uncontested divorce take in Texas?
After filing a divorce petition in Texas, you must wait a mandatory 60 days before scheduling your hearing. Hearings in uncontested divorce cases are typically faster, given that both parties already agree on key aspects of their divorce settlement.
Do I have to go to court for an uncontested divorce in Texas?
Avoiding a court appearance in Texas when filing for an uncontested divorce is possible. Because an uncontested divorce is amicable, the spouses do not require court intervention when deciding about property division or child custody. However, at least one spouse may have to appear before a judge as a formality to answer questions.
