Professional Help for Divorces in Austin, Texas

It is important that you understand the specific laws of the state because they can greatly affect the progress of your divorce and the overall outcome of your case. We are well-versed in Texas family law and can counsel you on the road ahead. You, or your spouse, must be a resident of the state of Texas for 6 months, and at least 90 days of the county you reside in, before you can officially file.

After filing, there's a 60-day waiting period. There are two ways to end a marriage: no-fault divorce and fault-based divorce. Cases of no-fault imply there has been conflict or that you and your partner haven't been living together for at least 3 years. Fault-based cases are, however, different.

To qualify, one of the following factors must be present:

  • Adultery
  • Abandonment
  • Cruel and inhumane treatment
  • Confinement for incurable insanity for 3 years
  • Conviction of a felony resulting in imprisonment for more than a year

Some cases can be executed through mutually agreed-upon terms. When issues such as custody, which are typical concerns of divorcing couples, can be resolved amicably, the process can be exceuted more easily. On the other hand, divorces of default must be executed when one partner doesn't sign the required papers; therefore, the partner who filed is permitted all requests.

Unfortunately, getting a divorce is not as simple as agreeing to part ways. Throughout the process, countless issues can arise that neither party may have expected; every effort should be made to resolve these issues as quickly and favorably as possible. If you cannot agree, the court will intervene and the judge will make a ruling on each topic. Failing to hire an adept lawyer can leave you dealing with terms and conditions that simply do not work for you or your family members.
