Protecting Your Rights & Helping to Build Your Future
Divorce is a difficult and emotional process, and it can be easy to make mistakes that cost you money or cause unnecessary stress. At Malcolm Miranda & Associates P.C., we understand how divorce works in Texas and can help you navigate the process while protecting your rights and your future.
How Long Does a Divorce Take in Texas?
There is no set time frame for a divorce, as it varies based on the unique circumstances of each case. However, the average divorce takes about 9 months to 1 year to complete. If you are seeking a no-fault divorce and do not have any major disputes, such as property or child custody issues, then you may be able to get divorced much faster.
How Does Divorce Work in Texas?
In Texas, you can file for a no-fault divorce, where you and your spouse agree that the marriage is over and there are no legal or moral wrongs on either side. A no-fault divorce can take as little as a few weeks to get finalized. Alternatively, you can file for a fault divorce, where you are accusing your spouse of some wrong or wrongdoing, such as adultery or cruelty. These types of divorces take longer to finalize, as they require more evidence and testimony.
What Do I Need to Prove for a Divorce?
There are a few different grounds for divorce in Texas, and each requires different evidence to prove.
Some of the common grounds for divorce include:
- Religious abandonment
- Living apart for at least 3 years
If you are filing for a fault divorce, you will need to gather evidence to prove your case. This may include:
- Photos of your spouse with the other person
- Witnesses who saw your spouse with the other person
- Phone records, text messages, and emails between your spouse and the other person
- Your spouse's credit card statements, phone records, and emails
- Any other evidence that proves your spouse was unfaithful, cruel, or abandoned you
