Texas has a no-fault divorce statute, which means that a divorce can be
granted even if only one party wants it. So, even if you don’t want
the divorce, the divorce can happen anyway. If you want your interests
to be protected, you will need to consult an attorney. The attorney will
require payment in some fashion. In certain situations, a party can request
payment from the marital estate or from the other party, but this is usually
a reimbursement for fees paid. Most attorneys won’t wait to be paid
until after the services have been rendered.
