Texas Divorce: Understanding the Process
Fault vs. No-Fault Divorce
Many people have questions about the differences between a fault and no-fault divorce. Under Texas state law, you can get divorced on both fault and no-fault grounds. With a fault-based divorce, the party moving for divorce must prove that their spouse did something “wrong” to justify the end of the marriage. Some examples of fault based grounds include adultery, abandonment, and cruel treatment.
On the other hand, a no-fault divorce allows a couple to separate on the grounds of insupportability. Neither party is required to prove that the other was to blame for ending the marriage. Instead, a difference in personalities is sufficient. For the vast majority of divorcing couples in Galveston County, the no-fault divorce option is simply quicker, easier, and cheaper. Even if your spouse did something wrong, a no-fault divorce may still be the better choice.
Uncontested Divorce and Contested Divorce
With an uncontested divorce, the parties are able to reach a settlement on all issues related to their case. In contrast, with a contested divorce, the case is on the path to go to court to be decided by a judge. When possible, an uncontested divorce is a faster and less expensive option.
Though, the line between a contested divorce and an uncontested divorce is not always so clear. A divorce that is headed for litigation can still be settled. Divorce negotiations that appear to be going well can still fall apart. With experience handling both contested and uncontested divorce cases, our Bolivar Peninsula attorneys are here to help you find the best solution.
How to File for Divorce in Bolivar Peninsula
In Galveston County, the divorce process starts with the filing of an Original Petition for Divorce. How exactly you should approach this depends on whether you are seeking an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce. If you and your spouse are close to an agreement or are already ready to separate, our Bolivar Peninsula family lawyer can help you get all of the uncontested divorce paperwork in order. From this point, the process can be fairly straightforward, quick, and easy.
If you are preparing to file for a contested divorce, it is strongly recommended that you consult with a lawyer before you file the divorce petition. There are a number of complex procedural requirements that you must follow and you will want to make sure that you are in the best position to bring your case. Our Bolivar Peninsula contested divorce lawyers will help.

Thank you Tad Nelson for standing up for me and what is right, Tad Nelson is obviously well known and respected through out the court system as he spoke with authority and precisely to the assistant DA resulting in the dismissal of my case before the case went to trial. Thank you again. if you want it done call Tad Nelson
I hired them a while back for a DWI out in Harris County, they're good and if you need help with any kind of legal matter, give em a call. For a lawyer, Tad has a great personality so working with him should be easier than working with other lawyers.
He is the one lawyer that I can call and put my trust into. We’ve used him a couple of times, once for a family matter and another time for a troubled relative. He’ll help, tell you the truth with no sugar-coating, and will work for his salt. He’s a good guy and when you go to their office, they make you feel at home, like you’re part of the team. Good lawyers and great folks.
I've had the pleasure of working with Tad personally as a technology consultant for him in the past. We've eaten lunch and dinner together. I know that Tad is very dedicated to his clients and cares for them off the clock. He's definitely the lawyer you want on your side.
