About Step 1
We will file your documents and pay the filing fee to the appropriate District Clerk. This step starts your waiting period that is required in Texas of 60 days.
About Step 2
What accounts does wife receive? What vehicle does husband receive? We ask the questions at our settlement link, and you type your answers.
Your responses will enable your lawyer to write the documents for you. We will counsel you on any questions you have as well.
Step 3. Review Your Divorce PapersReceive yours papers via email, go over on the phone and online with your lawyer
About Step 3
Once your documents are written, we will email them to you, and ask you to review them.
You can go over your documents during our suggested teleconference with your lawyer, or you can correspond via email to ask questions and submit added information.
About Step 4
The only participation needed from your spouse in an uncontested divorce is your spouse’s signature.
Your spouse will need to sign the decree before a notary public, as this adds a layer of protection to your spouse.
You will not need to sign the document until your final hearing. Again, your spouse will not need to attend court.
About Step 5
Once we have the signed decree back from your spouse, we will schedule your hearing with you in your county, and send your court instructions for meeting your attorney.
A Cook & Cook lawyer will meet you in court, walk you in, and meet the Judge. We will conduct your hearing quickly.
