I am an attorney licensed in the State of Texas. The following information is a brief answer to your question. However, if you feel that you need further information or that you have other insights which might help me in providing a better answer, please feel free to write back.
When there are no assets, a divorce can be very simple. However, your friend needs to file a General Denial. You need to make the document look like the petition (same heading). The title
is "General Denial". Then you state:
Defendant _________, appears before this court and files this Answer and General Denial herein and will respectfully XXXXX XXXXX the Court the Following:
Defendant ___________, denies each and every, all and singular claims and allegations made in Plaintiff's Petition for Divorce. Defendant requests a trial of this matter before a jury of her peers and that Plaintiff be caused to prove with credible evidence all allegations made in his petition.
Filing this document will allow your friend to reach an agreement regarding the separation of property. Then you file a settlement agreement
, and request that the judge issue a divorce decree based on the settlement agreement. The settlement agreement needs to state all the assets and how they will be divided, along with reference to the division of debts owed by the couple, and the retitling of any vehicles. She needs to make sure the divorce decree states that the court orders ex husband to sign over title to the vehicle.
