hello! i have an uncontested divorce without any property or children. as i just got my divorce decree im not sure what my next step is, i also live in texas
Family Lawyer: Sue, Family Law Attorney replied 2 months ago

This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.

Both parties need to take whatever steps are necessary that are set out in the Decree. For instance if there are 2 cars in both parties' names, each will have to sign off with the bank to transfer legal ownership of one car to one spouse and the other to the other.

That's true for joint loans, too.

Do you have more specific questions?
