Can I do some kind of quick easy no fault divorce in Texas? Cheaply!
I have no idea where to even begin.
We have no property to speak of and very little debt.

There is no such thing as a quick, easy, and cheap divorce.

Although uncontested divorces can be somewhat quicker, easier, and cheaper than contested divorces.

Why couldn't you just google Texas Divorce (like I did). Plenty of resources.

And your family court website should have forms and instructions.

I wish to inform you that Texas law allows for "no-fault" divorces. If a spouse is at fault for the breakup of the marriage, the court may take that into consideration in determining what is an equitable division of the couple's property. Consequently, you may want to include fault grounds in your petition for divorce. Further, a divorce cannot be final for at least 60 days after the petition is filed. The divorce is final once the judge pronounces it so in open court and signs the decree of divorce. If the divorce is contested, it may take six months to a year to finalize. Normally, the assets and liabilities may be divided equally between the parties. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance.

While every state varies, the cheapest way to divorce is often through mediation. Many mediators are attorneys as well, and can meet with you and your wife and come up with the basis for an agreement in as little as an hour of time. That is, if your wife and you basically agree on almost everything and cooperate with each other.

The mediator can then draw up the appropriate paperwork and file it with the court.

As adjusterjack said, it will not be "quick", although that's all relative.

In this regard you should speak with your spouse to mutually move for a divorce to avoid unwanted disputes and litigation. So a mediation is a good option.
