The Top 5 Texas Divorce Questions
We’ve met many clients with questions that are similar to your own. Listed below are some of the most common questions that are first asked by our clients:
Where can I file my divorce?
To file for a Texas divorce, you must have lived in Texas for the past 6 months. The appropriate county to file in is the county you have lived in for the last 90 days.
What is the most common ground for divorce?
The most common ground for divorce is known as No-Fault or insupportability.
How long will the divorce take?
A divorce can become final only 61 days after the date the divorce petition was filed. An uncontested divorce is the swiftest option for a divorce. Contested issues can take much longer because they often require a trial date and the timing and length of the trial is dependent on the Court’s docket.
Should I pursue a contested or uncontested divorce?
Uncontested divorce occurs when two spouses reach an agreement on all their divorce issues including property division, child support and child custody. Contested divorce occurs when the spouses cannot agree on issues such as property and parental rights.
What are the benefits of an uncontested divorce?
An uncontested divorce is less expensive and faster. These are generally easier, particularly if you have the help of a divorce attorney who can address any unexpected complicated legal surprises or questions that arise along the way.
While these 5 questions are among the most common, we know they’re only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your own concerns about your future. We can answer your specific Texas divorce questions. Each couple and family has their own unique circumstances and needs.
In an uncontested divorce the spouses in agreement might simply need legal guidance to help them through the process. W&M will work with you during the process to advocate that your best interests are met. Uncontested divorces are often emotionally-charged with greater uncertainty of the future outcome when there is difficulty reaching agreements. We understand the emotional and financial issues of these cases and take special care to be right by your side, answering all of your questions along the way, and looking out for your best interests and the interest of your children.
