Can my spouse and I file for divorce jointly?

Although some other states allow couples to file for divorce jointly, Texas unfortunately does not. This question most often arises when spouses wish to pursue simplified divorce, in which divorce is a mutual decision and couples do not have any disagreements regarding their divorce settlements. However, even if you wish to pursue a simplified divorce, you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse must decide who is responsible for initiating the filing as you cannot file jointly.

If you or your spouse has questions about simplified divorce, we can address these concerns and help you determine the type of divorce that best suits your needs. Contact the experienced Lewisville divorce attorneys of Alexander & Associates today by calling (972) 420-6560 to discuss your case.
