 TexasLawHelp Divorce Form Set B: Opposite-Sex Spouses, with children together

Important! TexasLawHelp instructions and forms are not legal advice and are not a substitute for the advice and help of a lawyer. It is a good idea to talk to a lawyer about your particular situation before filing or responding to a divorce.

Divorce Form Set B may be used to file for divorce in Texas if:

  • you have an opposite-sex marriage, and
  • you and your spouse have children who are under 18 or still in high school and
  • there are no court orders about the children.

Note:  If you have a family violence protective order that includes orders about the children, you should still use Form Set B.  Attach a copy of the protective order to your Original Petition for Divorce.
