Nolo Press Occidental decided not to publish an edition for 2017-2019 because there were no changes to the forms, and only minor changes in Texas divorce law.

This guide shows those in the Lone Star State how to complete their own divorce for $200 or less.

A CDROM included contains all the forms, schedules, and worksheets in the printed book for completion on a computer.
