How Do I Get A Divorce With No Money?

Getting a divorce with absolutely no money is difficult but not impossible. The party seeking to file for divorce can visit the Family Law Staff Attorney’s Office at the Bexar County Courthouse to obtain a packet of information to assist in preparing and filing the paperwork for starting a divorce case. The filing fee can be waived if the filing party prepares an affidavit of indigency declaring that he or she has no money. Another alternative is to seek free legal aid or the assistance of a pro-bono lawyer.

What Can You Not Do During A Divorce?

Most counties in Texas have standing orders that govern the parties’ actions during the pendency of a divorce proceeding. Generally speaking, a spouse may not:

What Is The First Thing To Do When Getting A Divorce?

What If I Want A Divorce And My Husband Doesn’t?

Either spouse can seek a divorce at any time, with or without the consent of the other spouse.

How Do You Secretly Prepare For A Divorce?

A party seeking a divorce should always consult an attorney.
