Houston Uncontested Divorce vs. Contested Divorce
The Houston-based law firm of Robert Reid McInvale offers legal counsel to those going through the painful process of ending a marriage. He will advocate on your behalf throughout the process, whether the divorce is uncontested or contested, in order to protect your rights and interests.
Uncontested divorces are fairly straightforward affairs to resolve. The parties to the divorce are in agreement on all key matters and the court merely serves to legalize their divorce agreement. The couple involved in an uncontested divorce may be able to take advantage of an expedited dissolution of marriage under Texas Collaborative Law, which may be thought of as a form of legal separation, keeping in mind that Texas law does not recognize the concept of legal separations. A Houston divorce lawyer skilled in the different options available in Texas can guide you through whichever process will work best for you.
Contested divorces are usually trickier to resolve. In these cases, the parties are adversarial and cannot agree on the terms of divorce. The most likely causes for disagreement are:
- Grounds given for the divorce
- Child custody, support, and visitation rights
- Division of marital assets
- Alimony (spousal maintenance) or payment of family debts
When a divorce is contested, the couple involved has no choice but to let the court system decide the matters related to the divorce. Both parties should have a divorce law firm representing their concerns in the divorce, fighting to win their client the best possible arrangement with regards to all contested issues.
Whether you are involved in an uncontested or contested divorce, you need an advocate like Robert Reid McInvale on your side, ensuring that your interests and rights are championed throughout.
