We understand, when couples decide they want to dissolve their marriage, they would like to get through the process as quickly as possible. However, in the state of Texas there are some factors you will want to take into consideration in order to have an accurate understanding of how long your divorce will take. For instance, in the state of Texas, the courts do not recognize legal separation. This means, even if you and your spouse have been living apart the last year, this time apart will not count as time spent apart. Texas requires a minimum period of 60 days to pass after the official petition for divorce before finalizing a divorce. So while it is possible to be divorced within 61 days, this does not necessarily mean a quick divorce is what is in the best interest of you or your family. Working with an experienced divorce attorney, such as the ones at Renken Law Firm, can help you to fight for what matters most to you in your divorce. We work to provide our clients with long term solutions that meet the needs of their family as quickly as possible.

Community Property in Houston
Since Texas does not recognize legal separation, you will want to quickly start your divorce process one you have made the decision to dissolve your marriage. This is because even if you are living an entirely separate life from your spouse, all property and debt acquired by either part with be considered community property in Texas. Even if the property is specifically titled to one spouse, the ownership will still be shared among both partners. While this can be a negative for a spouse who is looking to keep their own property, it can also be negative to the person who did not make the purchase. This is because the debt is equally shared between both partners as well.
