Not only is Texas one of the easier states to get a divorce in, but it also allows clients to secure a marital dissolution with an average of 61 days, one of the fastest processes in the country.
Contested and Uncontested Divorces
The type of divorce will affect the amount of time necessary to get through the process. Contested divorces often involve a longer process, especially if both sides are involved in a bitter dispute. Uncontested divorces where both sides are in agreement start with the filing of documents. Following that step, a waiver of citation must be filed with the courthouse clerk. Both spouses must appear before a judge on or soon after the 61st day for a judge’s approval or denial.
