Understanding the Divorce Process in Texas

In Texas, the divorce process can be divided into two categories: contested and uncontested. 

Contested Divorce: This is when both parties cannot agree on one or more issues, such as child custody, property distribution, alimony, or child support. A contested divorce usually requires court intervention to resolve these disagreements. This process is typically time-consuming and costly.

Uncontested Divorce: On the other hand, an uncontested divorce occurs when both parties agree on all the issues and only requires the court's approval. It is generally quicker and less expensive. 

The time it takes to finalize a divorce in Texas largely depends on the type of divorce and the complexity of the case. It can range from 60 days (the mandatory waiting period in Texas) to a year or more for highly contested cases. On average, divorce cases in Texas are resolved in six (6) months to a year. 

If you're considering a divorce, you will likely go through the following process:

  • Consult with a knowledgeable family law attorney.
  • Gather all relevant financial documents and consider your financial situation.
  • Decide on the type of divorce you'll be filing for, either contested or uncontested.
  • File a Petition for Divorce with the court.
  • Serve your spouse with the divorce papers.
  • Negotiate on key issues as necessary.
  • Attend court hearings and finalize the divorce. 

Remember, every case has unique circumstances, and this information serves as a general guide. For personalized guidance, contact the Christopher P. Cavazos Law Firm, PLLC.

Navigating Uncommon Divorce Situations: High Net Worth and High Conflict Divorces

In some instances, the complexities of a divorce case can be amplified. This is often the case with high net worth and high conflict divorces.

High Net Worth Divorces: These involve substantial financial assets. A high net worth divorce can be more complex due to the need for extensive financial discovery, valuing and dividing assets like businesses, real estate, investments, and retirement accounts. Our team takes a detail-oriented, solutions-based approach to managing these challenging cases. 

High Conflict Divorces: These are characterized by intense disagreements and high levels of animosity between the parties. High conflict divorces often involve contentious issues like child custody, spousal support, and property division that can lead to lengthy court battles. Our approach in these cases is to advocate fiercely for your rights while striving to diffuse conflict, minimize stress, and promote a resolution that serves your best interests and those of your children.
