Texas Divorce Basics
In Texas, to file for divorce, you or your spouse must have been a resident of the state for at least six months. It is a no-fault state, meaning couples do not have to prove bad behavior for a divorce to be granted. Certain evidence may be used to support positions in your case, but they are not needed to end the marriage.
As part of the divorce, there are many different aspects that need to be addressed to be sure that things go as smoothly as possible for you after things are finalized. This is how hiring our team can help you. We have extensive experience with complex divorces, including:
- Helping parties divide marital assets and debts according to Texas community property laws
- Working with parents to obtain comprehensive child custody and parenting time agreements
- Requesting or defending against requests for spousal support
- Assisting with the determination of child support awards
A contested divorce can take six months to a year for the parties to resolve. Some of our clients consult with us before making the decision to get divorced. This is a thoughtful step to take because it can help you to plan ahead and potentially to walk through a smoother process. When you contact one of our lawyers, you can learn about your eligibility for filing for divorce in your specific county.
