Divorce is a very difficult decision. There is so much to consider, from children to assets. We highly recommend you meet with experienced divorce attorney Tom Jackson. Mr. Jackson will break down the process for you and help you make a well-informed decision.
Texas is a “no-fault” state. This means, “we are getting a divorce because we do not like one another anymore”. Overall, most petitions to the courts are granted on the no-fault basis. Below you will find a list of informative pages for you to review.
Requirements to qualify for divorce:
- All divorces require a 60 day waiting period (the period of reconciliation) before you can actually be divorced. You can file a divorce decree with the court as a Rule 11 Agreement or Settlement Agreement, but you cannot be divorced until the 60 day period has gone by.
- A petition to the court identifies the parties involved, and recites the jurisdictional requirements, identifies any children, requests conservatorship of minor children, and property division, fees and court costs.
- Unless you and your spouse agree to all matters regarding child custody, property division, fees, court costs, and support, your divorce will be contested. With any dispute from your spouse on any of these matters, the petition is contested and there will be a trial.
In such a difficult time, it is crucial to meet with a divorce attorney you can trust to take care of you and your loved ones future.
