Attorneys in Lake Highlands share their tips of handling a messy divorce.
The law firm above serves the east Dallas area and has done so for several decades now. No matter what your needs, contact us for more info and to get started. The divorce process can be complicated (and difficult in general) and it's best to understand your options before trying to handle a case yourself or with an unqualified support team.
How do I start the process?
In order to begin moving for divorce in Texas, either you or your former spouse need to have lived in the state continuously for the six months prior to filing the application. One of you must also reside in the county where you are filing for at least 60 days prior. In Texas, there is a waiting period of at least 60 days after the application is filed before the divorce is complete, but please do note that most divorces take six months to a year to be completed, depending on how many sources of income are contested. Texas also allows no-fault divorces, although in some cases, a spouse's assertion of fault, such as adultery or cruel words, can influence property splits. A qualified divorce attorney at our Dallas law firm can help you determine the appropriate basis for your divorce and make sure that the required procedures are followed.
