Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

In Texas, a divorce is considered to be either “contested” or “uncontested.” An uncontested divorce generally means that both spouses agree on the divorce and are able to work through the many negotiations amicably. This kind of divorce is generally processed much faster and requires less time and effort to work out the details.

A contested divorce, on the other hand, is often more intensive. In a contested divorce, each party is in disagreement about matters such as child custody, child support, alimony, and property division. John Runge, our Arlington divorce attorney, is particularly useful during a contested divorce.

No-Fault Divorce in Texas

The State of Texas allows for no-fault divorce – this means that a spouse filing for divorce does not have to prove any wrongdoing or fault to successfully be granted the divorce. Keep in mind, however, that a judge may use fault to help determine asset and property division.

Representing Your Rights through Asset Division & Negotiations

Couples at the beginning stages of a divorce may be surprised to find out how many matters must be negotiated and settled. Regardless of the duration of your marriage, you and your spouse will have accumulated possessions and property that need to be divided fairly. You may also have children whose needs must be addressed. Our Arlington divorce lawyer, John Runge, can represent your rights through these negotiations.

We work tirelessly to help you:

  • Negotiate child custody arrangements
  • Establish child support payment plans
  • Navigate alimony disputes
  • Separate property and other assets
  • Revisit and modify a previous settlement

We recommend retaining our services from the beginning of your journey to maximize the benefit of having a seasoned attorney on your side. With respect and compassion, Runge Firm can help you through the complex legal situations surrounding a separation. We can answer questions you have about gaining access to your children and seeking relief from your spouse's debt, among other matters.

Can I Have the Same Attorney as My Spouse?

No. While one party may represent themselves (pro se representation), in Texas, an attorney may only represent one party. Runge Firm has worked with numerous pro se parties over the years to resolve conflict and bring family law disputes to complete and final resolution.

When you retain your own counsel, seek the help of John Runge an experienced divorce lawyer in Arlington who eagerly listens to your goals and helps you achieve them through your separation. A competent lawyer will have an in-depth understanding of your options during a complicated divorce.

At Runge Firm, all initial consultations are free. Request yours today by contacting us online or calling (817) 339-6147.
