Texas Supreme Court Adopts DIY Divorce Forms

More questions than answers seem to stem from the adoption of do-it-yourself divorce forms by the Texas Supreme Court. This divorce-friendly system has been widely opposed by family law attorneys since it may lead to more serious unforeseen problems if couples do not have the legal know-how to fill out these forms or adequately protect their interests in a divorce.

“This really will change the lives of so many people who have not been able to get help through legal aid,” Trish McAllister, Texas Access to Justice Commission executive director said.

Last year, a group consisting of lawyers, judges, and other professionals along with the Texas Access to Justice Commission was set up to help draft the forms. However, members of the family law section of the State Bar of Texas and some concerned family law attorneys strongly oppose this act. However, the court decided to proceed otherwise.
