To be brief, I have filed for a divorce, and decided to do a "Do It Yourself Divorce," whereby I fill out and file everything myself without a divorce attorney. I sent the necessary forms to my local district clerk, and they later informed me to fill out the divorce decree forms, and send those to the local district court. It was suggested to me that I should get my divorce forms from TexasLawHelp.org. Here is the link to where I got my papers: http://texaslawhelp.org/resource/divorce-without-children-in-texas?ref=izLn2 The court coordinator contacted me, and informed me that the Judge says there are some mistakes on the forms. Without legal help, I am kind of lost over what these mistakes could be. Could someone help me by looking them over, and guide me on what I am doing wrong?
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
An uncontested divorce is one in which spouses agree on relevant issues such as division of property, child custody/support, and alimony.
