No, in fact most divorces settle out of court and don't go to trial at all. Out of court settlements can be accomplished either through settlement conferences, mediation, or collaborative law. Some situations may ultimately require you to go to court, but it's often preferable for you and your spouse to decide how to divide your assets or determine visitation instead of having a Judge do it for you.
Many good divorce lawyers in Austin are able to keep you and your family out of court if you prefer.
