COVID-19 has led to many businesses closing down temporarily or altering the way they conduct business in order to help fight against the spread of this highly contagious virus. At Renken Law Firm in Galveston, TX, we are doing our part to continue offering quality family law and divorce services without requiring in-person visits. We understand that divorces are often difficult in normal circumstances, but during a pandemic, the stresses are increased. We specialize in helping divorcing couples that wish to work together through the mediation process to reach a resolution in their divorce case. Schedule your virtual divorce mediation consultation with one of our trusted attorneys today. We can help you understand your choices for divorce moving forward, as well as begin the process for divorce as soon as you are ready.
Whether you choose divorce mediation or another process of divorce our team can help provide you with useful information and services. You do not have to wait until after the pandemic ends to begin the process of divorce. Instead, schedule an online consultation with one of our attorneys to explore your option for divorce in the state of Texas.
While many couples choose divorce mediation because it is typically an accelerated process for divorce, there are still restrictions to the timeframe that apply. In the state of Texas, the minimum amount of time it will take to have a finalized divorce is 61 days. If you are involved in a contentious divorce with issues to work out such as child custody, complex finances, or shared property, the process has the potential to last months, and in rare cases, over a year. However, for mediated divorces where both parties are willing to work together to reach an agreement, 61 days can be enough time.
The courts in Texas do not recognize legal separation and will only begin counting your 60 days after the Original Petition for Divorce has been officially filed. If you have not yet filed your petition for divorce, the experienced divorce attorneys at Renken Law Firm in Galveston, TX can help you. Contact us today to learn more about filing for divorce in the state of Texas and to schedule your free one-hour virtual divorce consultation!
