Start
 
You are filing for divorce (or thinking about filing) because:

Check all that apply:

 
Your full name:

We need these next few answers to be able to draft your petition for divorce.  If you want to skip this question, you can.
 
Your spouse's full name:

We will use this on your petition for divorce, but if you want to skip this question, you can.
 
Does a spouse wish to change his/her name in the divorce?

(name must change to maiden name, if you elect to change it)  You can change your mind on this later if you want to.  It does not increase the cost of your case.
 
What date were you married?

This date will go on your Petition for Divorce.  You can skip this question if you would like to.
 
What date, if any, did you separate from your spouse?

approximating this date is fine with us!  In Texas, you do not have to have separated already to get divorced, so don't worry if you still live together.
 
In what Texas County are you filing for Divorce?

It must be a place where you or your spouse have lived for the last 6 months. 


If you are in the military, you may not need to live in Texas now, to get divorced here.  Email Megan at lawyer@partasfriends.com to figure out where to file your case.
 
What are the last three numbers of your driver's license? Or, what are the last 4 of your social security number?

We need this identifying number for your divorce petition.  You can skip this question if you would like to for now.
 
Do you have any children that are under 18 with your spouse?

     
 
Check all that apply to your case:


 
What are the names AND birthdays of all of your children?

Only fill this in if you have children under 18 years of age, that were born during the marriage.   INCLUDE children that you had during the marriage, even if they are not your spouse's child.  Do not include children born with someone else prior to marriage.  Not sure?  Call Megan-- (210) 271-2800.

You can skip this question, but please do tell us how many children you have and their ages below, even if you do not list their names.
 
What is your telephone number?

 
What day, 60 days or more from now, do you prefer to finalize your divorce case?

We will do our best to get your divorce set on this day.

Check all or any that apply.  This is not a test.  You can't get it wrong.

 
Please tell us the most important things to you about your divorce service. (skip this question if you want to)

examples are:  That the divorce is fast; I can reach my lawyer by cell; My spouse is not served with papers by a process server; I do not have to spend too much time on this; my kids are protected; my assets are protected; my credit is not damaged (Anything that matters to you)
 
How many pieces of real estate do either you or your spouse have (Whether together or separate)?

(this includes each home or piece of land that either or both parties own)
 
How many retirement plans do the parties need to divide as a part of this divorce?

If the spouse's are simply keeping their own retirement accounts, the answer is 0.  If a pension, 401K, military retirement, or any other retirement benefit is to be split, list the number of those retirement accounts in the marital estate (owned by either party)
 
Select all that apply to you:
