San Antonio Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Finalize Your Uncontested Divorce Quickly & Favorably

If you are filing for divorce, you’ll either be filing contested or uncontested. Filing contested means you and your spouse do not agree on the terms of your separation and will likely need litigation to finalize your divorce. Filing uncontested means you and your spouse agree on all the terms of your separation and are willing to present a finalized agreement to the court for approval.

At The Law Office of Derek S. Ritchie, PLLC, our San Antonio uncontested divorce attorney strives to help people resolve disputes amicably and finalize their divorces favorably. We go the extra mile to see our clients succeed.

Call (210) 775-2000 or contact us online to request a free consultation with a San Antonio uncontested divorce attorney at our divorce law firm.

The Uncontested Divorce Process

If you are wondering how to get started with your divorce, our San Antonio uncontested divorce lawyer at The Law Office of Derek S. Ritchie, PLLC is here to help.

If you wish to file for an uncontested divorce in Texas, you must qualify by meeting the requirements:

  • You or your spouse must have lived in Texas for at least six months
  • You or your spouse must have lived in the county where you are filing for at least three months
  • You and your spouse must agree on all issues in your divorce

If you meet these requirements and wish to proceed with an uncontested divorce, our San Antonio uncontested divorce lawyer can help you with all the paperwork moving forward.

In Texas, there is a 60-day mandatory waiting period. Your divorce will not be finalized for at least 61 days after filing your petition. The court will schedule a final hearing so that a judge can approve your uncontested divorce agreement and sign the Final Decree of Divorce.

Why File Uncontested?

Divorce is an emotional process no matter what. Filing uncontested can reduce some of the burden you are sure to face when ending your marriage.

The benefits of an uncontested divorce include:

  • The process is faster
  • The process is less stressful
  • It costs less than a contested divorce
  • You maintain control over the decisions made – not a judge
