Uncontested divorce in Texas

While few in San Antonio go into a marriage thinking that it will end in divorce, statistics show that many will end up facing the reality of it. Indeed, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that an average of 3.7 of every 1,000 Texas residents divorced every year from 1990-2012. When couples start discussing divorce, a number of concerns can arise. Divorce proceedings can easily turn into a long, ugly process that takes a heavy emotional toll on all of the parties involved. Yet while sometimes circumstances will necessitate contesting a divorce, many couples can typically end their marriages in a relatively fast and easy fashion through an uncontested divorce.
