To answer like any good lawyer, we have to say “it depends!”
Of course, anyone is allowed to file their divorce pro se (meaning you represent yourself). There is no requirement that you hire an attorney. For example, if you have no children or adult children, little or no assets, and you agree about how to divide things, you may be fine not having legal representation.
But, if you have minor children, assets, or your spouse has hired an attorney, it is riskier to represent yourself. Texas law is complicated, so even an amicable divorce will benefit from the input of a family law attorney to avoid costly mistakes.
