Can couples with children get a simplified divorce?
A simplified divorce, like its name suggests, is the fastest and easiest ways for a couple to obtain a divorce. However, they must be able to come to an agreement themselves about several issues, and they must not have any minor children. Couples with minor children must have certain issues, such as child custody and support reviewed by the court. Couples with children who have reached adulthood are permitted to obtain a simplified divorce if they each agree that the marriage is not salvageable, and agree on how property should be divided between the two of them. Any dispute will likely result in a more complicated divorce if it is not resolved privately.
If you are considering divorce, whether simplified or otherwise, it is wise to have experienced legal counsel on your side to help you avoid missteps and protect your interests. To speak with a qualified attorney, contact the Houston divorce lawyers of Holmes, Diggs & Sadler today at (713) 802-1777.
