When reading my posts, especially ones from way back, remember that the law is a constantly changing and fluctuating entity. Point being, something that was discussed a year ago may not be the law now. So take anything you read in my posts with a grain of salt, and always verify the information with a lawyer of your choice. Or if you cannot afford or find a lawyer, research your specific issues by going to the heart of the matter….the Texas Family Code to which I have provided a link to the right.

I have found an excellent resource for those of you out there pursuing your own "pro se" (representing yourself) 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 and more specifically the family law information can be found at

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. 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…..

UPDATE: I now offer online forms that are created and reviewed by an attorney (me). Once created, the documents are forwarded to you with instructions on how to proceed in representing yourself in your own divorce. Visit my website at for further information.
