ORDERED that: 1. By Order dated November 13, 2012, in Misc. Docket No. 12-9192, the Court approved a set of uniform forms, Divorce Set One, and invited public comment. Following public comment, the Court made revisions to the forms. This Order incorporates those revisions, effective immediately. 2. The following set of uniform forms, Divorce Set One, is approved for use in uncontested divorces that do not involve children or real property. Use of the approved forms is not required. However, a trial court must not refuse to accept any of the approved forms simply because the applicant used forms or is not represented by counsel. If the approved forms are used, the court should attempt to rule on the case without regard to nonsubstantive defects. 3. The Clerk is directed to cause a copy of this Order to be mailed to each registered member of the State Bar of Texas by publication in the Texas Bar Journal. Dated: June 17, 2013 Wallace B.
