Galveston Divorce

In Galveston County and throughout Texas, there are two kinds of divorce: contested and uncontested. If you and your spouse are in disagreement over a divorce-related issue such as child custody or property division, then your contested divorce may require court intervention. If you both agree on all of the relevant issues, then you can likely avoid courtroom proceedings with an uncontested divorce, often called a "no-fault" divorce.

Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, you know that much is at stake, and it is important to work with an experienced divorce attorney. At Daniel R. Bacalis, P.C., we have been helping Texas family law clients resolve divorce-related matters for more than 30 years. Contact our Dickinson office today to explore your legal options.

Limiting Conflict and Minimizing Cost with Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorce requires that you and your spouse agree on all of the relevant issues. Depending on the circumstances, those issues may include community property division, alimony, child support or child custody.

Because uncontested divorce typically involves lower conflict than contested divorce, there are some advantages to the no-fault approach. For example, the process of ending the marriage tends to be more cost-effective and less time-consuming in no-fault divorce because you and your spouse can agree on a settlement without going to court.

Uncontested divorce also tends to be less stressful for any children who are involved.

When You and Your Spouse Disagree on the Terms of Your Divorce

While no-fault divorce is preferable for most divorcing spouses, sometimes an uncontested divorce turns into a contested divorce when the parties realize they cannot agree on one or more of the issues.

In other cases, matters such as adultery, domestic violence, child custody disputes and disagreements over property division lead to a contentious divorce. As a board certified family law attorney, I — Daniel R. Bacalis — am prepared to handle any case involving a dispute over property rights or family law issues, including matters related to complex assets, business valuation, hidden assets and allegations of abuse or adultery.
