    Does anybody have any advice about getting divorced in Texas?

    My husband and I are getting a divorce and I can't afford a lawyer. But we're splitting everything equal and are going to share custody. Neither of us wants any trouble we just want out. We live in Austin County Texas and want the easiest type of divorce possible. Any advice?

    Well, you guys got it simple, so that is cool.  If you need free legal advice, I suggest you go search for any form of free legal service provider that exist in Texas, I don't know whether there are any in the US, but there should be.

    Apart from that, you guys surly don't have a complicated divorce like Alan Harper from Two and a Half Man, so it is good.

    I can reccomend if it is going to be uncontested they cost just $149 and do all the forms for you.

    If it is as simple as you say, why don't you do everything without a lawyer. Takes a little homework and doing your own foot work but the courts shouldn't stop you from representing yourselves pro se. You are asking the wrong people here. Go on line to the Texas State Bar, search using the pertinent key words and take it where it leads you. Your local bar association will lead you in the right direction. Lawyers don't charge too much if it is as you say. There is a lawyer that charges an advertised rate of $150 (approx) and that is worth the time and hassle of doing it yourself from scratch.

    My question is why do you need a divorce if everything is that amicable. Would it be easier to just to live separate? At least until you save enough to afford the divorce? If you are getting along well enough that there is no argument over the specifics, what is the urgency of getting the divorce?
