    Default How to Serve Your Incarcerated Spouse With Divorce Papers

    If your spouse is incarcerated in Texas, how can you serve him with divorce papers. Is it possible to set up an appointment for him to sign papers, and what happens if he won't sign?

    Default Re: How to Serve Your Incarcerated Spouse With Divorce Papers

    You can locate a Texas prisoner through the Department of Criminal Justice website. From the inmate information you can identify the facility in which the prisoner is held, and get contact information for that facility. You can then contact the facility to determine its practices for serving documents upon an inmate. Often it's simply a matter of delivering the documents to a designated officer within the prison, who delivers the papers and completes the return of service.

    Any prison is going to want to examine any documents that are to be served upon or signed by an inmate, for possible presence of dangerous items (including paperclips and staples) or contraband. It may be possible to arrange for an inmate to sign documents, screened by prison officials, at the time of a visit, but there may be complexities (e.g., with non-contact visits or inmates with behavioral issues) that make it difficult, or the prison may have other procedures that it wants you to follow. You should contact the facility and learn its procedures.
