How long will the divorce take?
A divorce can become final only 61 days after the date the divorce petition was filed. This is achieved surprisingly often, when the two spouses reach an agreement on all their divorce issues. This is known as an uncontested divorce.
Contested issues can take much longer. This is because they often require a trial date and the timing and length of the trial is dependent on the Court’s docket. This is known as a contested divorce.
Contested and Uncontested Divorce?
Each divorce lands into one of these categories.
Texas Uncontested Divorce
In most cases, an uncontested divorce, also known as an agreed divorce or no fault divorce, is the preferred way to go. An uncontested divorce exists when both spouses agree on property division and child custody/visitation/support issues if applicable.
Warren & Migliaccio encourages uncontested divorces when it is in your best interest. See our section on Uncontested Divorce: The Process for more information on how the process works and how we can help you save time and money while still protecting all your legal interests.
