Uncontested Divorce

Not all divorce actions must be adversarial and highly contentious. Many people believe that because you need to file a lawsuit against the other party in a divorce and have them served, it automatically means you are setting yourself up for a protracted court battle. This is simply not true.

Linda Stanley has over 33 years of experience helping clients through the divorce process in Texas. Her extensive network of resources, colleagues and the courts allows her to provide a full service family law firm to her clients.  For more information about how she can help you, contact us today to schedule an appointment.  Please understand that a lawyer can only represent one party to a divorce and each party will need their own representation.


Different Paths to Achieving an Uncontested Divorce

Many uncontested divorces can be resolved in a mediation or collaborative setting. Parties who have reached agreement on all issues can proceed with an uncontested divorce that does not require litigation.  Linda Stanley is well-qualified to help individuals who are seeking to use these methods when seeking dissolution of a marriage.   An uncontested divorce can save money for both parties.

Some couples come to a lawyer because they have worked out everything themselves and just need an attorney to help draft and finalize the divorce decree. This also qualifies as an uncontested divorce and also may qualify as limited scope representation. Our firm can help you memorialize your wishes and make sure they conform to the court's requirements so a judge will approve your agreements and sign your agreed decree.

Uncontested divorces can occur in long term and short term marriages and those with or without children. Call us to discuss your specific situation.

A party can also sign a waiver of service to avoid the adversarial step of being served with a notice that the other party is seeking a no-fault divorce. No matter what the situation, we are here to provide legal guidance to help you make informed decisions that everyone is comfortable with and that achieve your legal goals.
