How Long Does A Divorce Take In Texas?
It can depend on your circumstances. For some couples, a divorce in Texas can take them as little as two to three months. Other divorces can last from six months to one year.
Can One Parent Get Full Custody Of Their Kids?
If you can prove that having full legal and/or physical custody of your kids is within their best interests, a Texas judge may grant you approval. However, the circumstances of your divorce can often dictate whether or not you get that approval. You may stand a better chance of getting full custody of your kids if you can prove that it’s not within your children’s best interests to share custody with the other parent or if the other parent’s addiction or mental health struggles interfere with their ability to parent effectively.
Is Texas A No-Fault State?
Yes, Texas is a no-fault state when it comes to divorce. That means that neither you nor your spouse has to prove any wrongdoing for you to end your marriage.
