I have found an excellent resource for those of you out there pursuing your own “pro se” (representing yourself) uncontested divorce. I still think the first step is to contact your local district clerk’s office and/or the court for their procedures. Additionally, the Texas Young Lawyers Associtation (TYLA) has put together some great information in assisting you through the legal quagmire. Their website is the www.tyla.org and more specifically the family law information can be found at www.tyla.org/family_law.html.
They have a “Pro Se Divorce Handbook” and “What to Expect in Family Court”. Both of these are excellent resources as they pull the curtain back a bit from the process of uncontested divorces in Texas. They’ve done such a fine job that I think I may not need to do it myself. So it’s on to a new topic…..
