Divorce Decree Options in Texas
How to obtain a divorce decree without a lawyer
When it comes to preparing a final decree of divorce (also known as the "divorce decree") you have a few options in Texas:
- Free Fill-In-The-Blank Forms: prepare the divorce decree yourself using the free fill-in-the-blank forms offered by the state;
- Divorce Form Service: use a divorce form service like ours (compare the popular services); or
- Hire a Divorce Attorney to prepare the divorce decree.
In order to combat the influx of out of state divorce form services that were doing more harm to Texans that help, the Texas Supreme Court approved 4 sets of free DIY divorce forms in 2013.
The problem with the Supreme Court approved forms is that they are fill-in-the-blank forms, difficult to fill out, and time consuming. You can access these forms via the links below:
