Divorce is difficult enough without facing the prospect of financial catastrophe through excessive lawyer's fees. This clear guide shows those in the Lone Star State how to complete their own divorce for $200 or less. The first part explains how the laws work, how to divide the marital property, and how to settle issues of child custody and support, and generally helps readers reach agreement with the other spouse (thus keeping the divorce uncontested). The second part tells how to complete all the forms and file them with the court. At the back of the book is a complete set of tear-out forms. A CD-ROM contains all the forms, schedules, and worksheets in the printed book for completion on computer; the Citations by Publication and by Posting kits; a marital settlement agreement and DealMaker software to create one; addresses and weblinks of all the Texas county courthouses; and relevant portions of the Texas Family Code.
