How much does it cost to divorce in Texas?
We have no assets to speak of and no kids.
I need to get this started but really I have very few funds.

And he does not agree to divorce. So he says.

In this case you may have to contest the case as your spouse is not ready for a divorce. The cost incur may depends on the attorney you are engaging to contest your case and how it ends.

Nice, generic answer.

A contested divorce could be quite expensive and you WILL need an attorney.

You should seek a consultation with several local divorce attorneys to get an idea of the actual costs that you may incur.

Just because he says he doesn't want it doesn't mean you won't get it. Divorce is no-fault and all you need to do is say you want out, file your papers, and there won't be anything he can do about it.

Texas courts have websites with pretty good self help features. If your local court doesn't, try some of the bigger courts like Dallas, Harris, Tarrant, Denton.

You ought to be able to figure out how to file and serve your petition without a lawyer.

If he threatens you or gets violent, you get a restraining order and have him removed from the residence.

Almost it depends on the lawyer as my experience all divorce attorneys will charge you on an hourly basis. It is better to consult with a professional. For more information regarding the cost of divorce, you may contact - Joseph Samra.
