Hi this is Joe from how to file for divorce org and today we're going to file for divorce in the state of Texas so if you just come along we're just going to go right down this step-by-step guide and just go through these one by one so step one is to download the Texas divorce papers by clicking on this link right here and you'll download all the necessary Texas divorce papers it will go through in the next following steps step two the spouse that has decided to file for divorce which is means the either spouse can be the one to take the lead and file for divorce in Texas but the person that does needs to file a Texas divorce petition pay the filing fee of two hundred and sixty dollars now this is the state Fein there could be other county fees but most counties are two hundred and sixty dollars and also tell the clerk specifically that your other spouse will complete a waiver of citation now we go on to 7/3 after filing in step two you must send a copy of your file divorce petition as well as the waiver of citation that you mentioned to the clerk in step two an original and you need to send that spouse one copy so the non filing spouse then needs to have the waiver of citation notarized and if you don't know what a a form getting notarized is it's fine it's just a witness that's pointed by the state there's one every branch bank in the United States so all you'll have to do is have your soon-to-be ex spouse sign one of these waiver of citations in front of a notary at a branch bank but it can be anywhere a notary is found and that needs to be filed with the clerk so once these first three steps are done you're really ready to head into the what I call the meat and potatoes of the divorce process which is negotiating all the financial terms and which will all be in step four and so you really should both meet and have you're going to be filling out what is the final decree of divorce as well as the following now these are all just attachments to the final decree of divorce so for example if you have children you need to fill out some of these that have to do with children such as the child support order and the last one here employers order to withhold from earnings for child support so these are all that you want to just go through together and you don't need to file these yet you just need to have these all completed at this time because you're still waiting from the time that you first file the petition there's a 60 days where you have to just be on hold and the core kind of gives you this time to get all these steps done so if you have children moving along if you have children after you've agreed on the terms of the divorce decree as here you will have to attend parental divorce education classes and yes I know these are very annoying but you have to do this and you might not want to do it until after you've negotiated all this so that you know that your divorce is actually going to be happening in the near future there are divorce...
