How does uncontested divorce work?
Usually, when dealing with uncontested divorce cases, an attorney will
represent one party only. The lawyer will process the needed paperwork
and appear before the judge with the party he / she is representing. A
divorce petition must be filed and a waiver of the marriage citation must
take place. Since the divorce is uncontested, the husband and wife may
not feel the need for multiple representations.
The first action to be taken is to file the divorce lawsuit by filing a
petition. The decree is the final step and provides the information on
how to divide assets, debts, and visitation rights.
In order to fully guarantee that the divorce decree is in order and written
to benefit both sides of the divorce, you will want to hire an attorney.
To complete the divorce process, you must file a petition, sign the waiver
and sign the final divorce decree when it is ready. There is a
60-day waiting period in Texas between when you file the petition and when you are able to sign
your divorce decree.

The waiver is a process which is simply done in order to show that the
party that received the petition does not need to be served as in a contested
divorce. This saves time and money for both parties. The waiver also denotes
that the final divorce hearing may be done without both parties present
and does not need to be recorded for legal records.
