FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT ARE THE LAWS IN TEXAS?

Texas is a "no fault" state. Couples looking to divorce do not have to prove any allegations against the other. Simple stating that the marriage is insupportable is grounds to grand a divorce. 

The state of Texas requires a 60 day waiting period once a Petition for Divorce is filed. Assuming all criteria has been met, this is the fastest timeframe for a divorce to be finalized. Depending on the complexity of the case, divorce proceedings can typically take six months to a year to finalize.

WHAT DOES THE DIVORCE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?

Each case is unique and will have its own process. Typically, the divorce process follows the following order:

  • Initiating the divorce (filing the Petition of Divorce)

  • Temporary orders (if necessary)

  • Discovery of evidence

  • Settlement negotiations

  • Trial (if no settlement)

  • After trial / settlement
