I talked to a Harris County Family Court judge 2 days ago and he does NOT like this website because he said the Final Decree of Divorce does NOT properly divide real estate!
So, if you own real estate -- BEWARE! It will not give you proper title to the property so you will have trouble selling the real estate in the future since no title company will issue you a title policy if this is the only piece of paper you have giving you ownership of the real estate. In other words, if you try to use this Final Decree of Divorce from the above-listed website as proof that you own a piece of real estate at a later date, you have a worthless piece of paper!
YOU NEED TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY TO DRAFT YOUR FINAL DIVORCE DECREE plus ADDITIONAL REAL ESTATE DOCUMENTS THAT ARE FILED IN THE REAL ESTATE RECORDS OF THE COUNTY THAT THE REAL ESTATE IS LOCATED IN SO THAT YOU ACTUALLY OWN THE PROPERTY THAT YOU ARE AWARDED IN THE DIVORCE BY THE JUDGE!!!!
But if you have no kids, no property...this website might work for you.
You will need to submit a BVS form to the Court for all divorces in Harris County.
This form is sent to Austin to be filed -- it is entered into a central computer system available to people to "track" to see if you are divorced. Before Texas started the BVS (Bureau of Vital Statistics Form tracking system, several years ago, attorneys had to call each county clerk's office to see if a person was divorced in that county. Now an attorney can just contact Austin and find out if a divorced has been filed -- quick and easy!
