Texas Low-Cost Divorce Attorney

Uncontested divorce typically costs significantly less than a contested divorce, and it tends to take much less time to complete. This is because you do not have to spend money to have a divorce lawyer fight your battles and reach agreements for you. You do not incur the costs of working with a mediator or having a judge decide the outcome of your case. Even the money that would be spent by one spouse serving divorce papers to the other can be saved in an uncontested divorce by having the respondent sign a waiver.

Representation From a Family Law Attorney Is Important

While uncontested divorce means that you have worked with your spouse to reach agreements about property division, child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support and all other issues, it is still important that you are represented by a family law attorney. You can contact me, Michael Suffness, for experienced representation.

I will make certain that all of the agreements you have worked so hard to reach with your spouse are accurately represented in the divorce decree. I will take care to see that there are no tangles, guiding you through the process as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

Collaborative Law Is Not Uncontested Divorce

Many people confuse collaborative law and mediation with uncontested divorce. While collaborative law and mediation allow spouses to resolve disputes in an amicable manner, they are not the same as uncontested divorce.

An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which you and your spouse reach agreements on your own, without the intervention of a collaborative law specialist, a mediator, a lawyer or a judge. Even if you only have a few disagreements that need to be resolved, your case is not truly an uncontested divorce. Even if your case is not truly uncontested, I can help. I have the experience to carefully resolve all types of divorce.
