Texas Divorce Law: Know Your Rights

Under Texas law, a divorce is not final until at least 60 days after the petition is filed. The state does not recognize legal separation. That means you and your spouse could be living separately, but until the divorce is legally finalized, any assets or debts that either of you acquire will still be considered marital assets and debts by the court. Texas is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means that the person filing for divorce doesn’t have to prove misconduct done by the other spouse. However, a judge may consider misconduct when it comes to dividing assets, determining child custody, and more.

Divorce tends to be a lengthy process. It is typical for the process to range from six months to a year and sometimes more. This is largely dependent on the amount and complexity of disputes and issues that arise during the process. Having an experienced attorney on your side will keep you informed throughout the process so you always know your options. Attorney Eric Smith will dedicate his attention to understanding your unique needs and goals in your divorce. He will work hard to make the process more convenient and less stressful for you. Eric will also fight to protect your rights and advocate for your interests. You don’t have to handle this alone; contact us in order to speak with a passionate divorce lawyer today.

Attorney Smith will handle the paperwork for you, explain the legal process, and ensure that you are spoken for if any unexpected issues arise.
