Going it alone

Divorce, even uncontested divorce, can be complex. Trying to “go it alone” or using an untrained, unlicensed non-lawyer can have negative consequences.

Pursuant to Texas law a non-lawyer is not allowed to provide legal advice or to coach. This is similar to a non-doctor not being allowed to perform surgery, treat illness, etc. If a non-attorney answers legal questions they are practicing law without a license. This act is referred to as the unauthorized practice of law (UPL). UPL simply means an unlicensed person can’t explain the law to you or help you apply the law to your situation and circumstances. Non-lawyers include court clerks and staff that can’t make decisions for you or answer your legal questions. Only a duly licensed Texas attorney can answer your questions, explain the law to you, and coach through the Texas divorce process.

However, most couples completing an uncontested divorce in Texas may not wish to hire an attorney to manage their entire divorce case. This is often due to high costs of attorney fees. Generally, the more time an attorney works on your case, the more it costs you as attorney’s usually bill for their time at hundreds of dollars per hour.

In an uncontested divorce there are many steps to complete in order to obtain a final divorce decree. Many of these steps don’t require the experience of an attorney. For example, easier steps like delivering the documents to the court, obtaining signatures from your spouse, etc. By doing these steps yourself, you don’t have to pay an attorney hundreds of dollars to complete these steps for you.
