Siging a WAIVER OF SERVICE in Texas

BEWARE!  If you sign a document called A WAIVER OF SERVICE within the State of Texas, you are basically telling the JUDGE to proceed without you and ANYTHING in the final paperwork is ok with you.

MOST RECENT HORROR STORY: One gentlemen emailed me today.  He wanted a quick and easy divorce. He did  NOT hire or even talk to an attorney.  He signed the WAIVER OF SERVICE that his wife's attorney prepared.  The divorce was supposedly (he does not know) granted in November 2009.  The paperwork that the Judge signed said that he would make her car note payments until the vehicle is paid for and pay her alimony of over $1,000/month for the next 3 years.  He can't make these payments.  She is treatening to throw him in court.

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!  If you want to save money on legal fees, it might end up costing you thousands of dollars to fix it! 

PLUS: Many times you are TOO LATE to modify the final paperwork that the JUDGE signed.
