El Paso Divorce FAQs

How long does it take to get a divorce in Texas?

In Texas, couples must wait at least 60 days from the time of filing for divorce before their divorces can be finalized. This means that if you and your divorcing spouse have already hammered out your divorce terms when you file, you will need to wait the two months before your divorce can be finalized. If, however, you have divorce terms that need to be resolved at the time of your filing, which is more common, you can use this waiting period to do your negotiating. If you are facing any complicated divorce issues, however, it is very likely to take considerably longer than 60 days for you to negotiate mutually acceptable terms.

Is there a separation requirement prior to divorce in Texas?

In the State of Texas – unlike some other states – there is no separation requirement prior to divorce. In fact, Texas does not even recognize legal separations. This means that, in Texas, you are married until you are divorced – there is no legal status in Texas that is known as legal separation in many other states. This means that separated couples might need to enter into temporary orders to protect their rights.
