What is a Divorce?
Most people understand that a divorce is the legal recognition of a marriage ending. These proceedings are referred to as a “dissolution of marriage.” Most divorces can be put into one of two categories, “contested” or “uncontested”. Whenever a couple files for a contested divorce, this is an indication that the parties involved are unable to reach an agreement on one or more issues in their divorce. While filling for an uncontested divorce is an indication that the parties were able to agree to the terms of their divorce. The state of Texas does not recognize legal separation. This means, until you officially file for divorce your time apart will not count in the minimum amount of time required to divorce. In Texas, you have to wait a minimum of 60 days after your official petition for divorce is filed. While each family is different and have their own set of unique needs that may influence the timeline you can expect for your divorce, the average divorce in Texas typically lasts between six months and a year.
At Renken Law Firm, we fight for families to ensure they are making the best choices for their needs and to protect the best interest of any children that may be involved in a divorce.
