Divorce Attorney in Hidalgo County

Are you considering divorce? Have you been served with papers? Have you and your spouse mutually decided that it is time to separate from one another? If so, do not move forward in the legal process until you have spoken with an experienced Hidalgo County divorce lawyer at Armando M. Guerra & Associates, PLLC.

In the state of Texas, one spouse must fulfill the residency requirement of living in Texas for at least six consecutive months before filing for divorce. Getting a divorce can be one of the most important legal decisions you make, which is why your choice in legal representation during your divorce could have a significant impact on the outcome of your case - and your family's future.

Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorces relate to the legal process of legally terminating a marriage when the separating spouses are in agreement with one another about the terms of the divorce. Because the separating couple agrees with one another, mediation or litigation will not be necessary, making the divorce "uncontested."

The benefits of an uncontested divorce include:

  • Provides the separating couple with flexibility
  • Allows the separating couple to exhibit control over their own legal matters
  • Less expensive than divorces that go to court
  • Generally faster results than divorces that go to court
  • Allows the separating couple to maintain an amicable relationship
  • Greater chances of allowing the family to maintain closer, friendly ties for the future

All of these benefits can be lost without the guidance of a skilled attorney. It can be incredibly easy to let emotions or assumptions get in the way during divorce. If one party feels as if they are being ignored or somehow coming up short in the agreement, the once-uncontested divorce can turn into a heated courtroom battle.
