Q
If I want a divorce and my spouse doesn’t, can I still get divorced?
AYes, as stated above, the court will grant a divorce if either party swears under oath that the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities that has destroyed the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation. Likewise, a party to a lawsuit cannot unilaterally obstruct the lawsuit; meaning, once a person is legally notified of the proceedings, the proceedings will go on with or without him/her.

My spouse and I are contemplating an agreed divorce. Do I still need to be represented by an attorney? even if we go to mediation?

The same holds true if you go to mediation. An attorney understands the finer details of the process and can assist you in navigating the legal system, including mediation. An attorney can then assist you in reducing your agreements to an enforceable final judgment, called a decree.

What is probate and is it something to avoid in Texas?
AProbate is a process that provides a means for: transferring legal title of assets, distributing property according to the wishes of the deceased, and providing a vehicle for creditors to be paid.
