Your Texas Divorce Options

Our Frisco family law attorneys want our clients to achieve their goals throughout the divorce process in the least stressful, most cost-efficient manner possible.

Every situation is unique, and we often recommend:

Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

Contested divorce refers to a divorce in which you and your spouse are not able to come to an agreement on one or all terms of your divorce, including child custody, child support, property division, etc. In a contested divorce you will need to undergo mediation to come to an agreement on the terms of your divorce. In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse are able to agree on all terms of your divorce and you may be able to have your divorce granted by a judge sooner than if you had to undergo mediation.

Other Divorce Issues We Can Help You With

During the divorce process, you must resolve many critical, far-reaching personal, financial, and legal issues.

We help our clients navigate through these issues, like:

Grounds For Divorce In Texas

Texas Divorce FAQ:

Do I need a divorce lawyer in Texas?

While you aren’t required to be represented by a family law lawyer serving Frisco when filing for divorce, it’s the best way to ensure that your best interests are protected and that the divorce is fair. This is particularly important if you and your spouse aren’t able to agree on the terms of your divorce, or if your spouse has hired a family law attorney to represent them.

How long does it take to get a divorce in Texas?

How long your divorce will take to resolve depends largely on whether you are filing a contested or uncontested divorce. If you and your spouse aren’t able to agree on the terms of your divorce, the process will take much longer as your family law lawyers negotiate the terms and the judge rules on your divorce settlement. It could take anywhere from 6 months to 1 year. If you and your spouse are able to agree on all terms, you may be able to finalize your divorce in as few as 60 days.

Will I have to go to divorce court?

If you are filing for uncontested divorce you may not actually need to go to court. You and your spouse will need to fill out a divorce settlement agreement and submit it to the judge, who may then ask a few questions to ensure that both parties understand the terms of the agreement and that you have willingly signed the agreement. After that the judge may grant your divorce.

Who can file for divorce in Texas?

If you are going to file for divorce in Texas you must have resided in Texas for a minimum of 6 months leading up to your divorce, and have been living in the county in which you are filing for at least 90 days.

Do You Pay Your Wife's Divorce Lawyer in Texas?

In some Texas divorce cases, each spouse pays their divorce attorneys. In other divorce cases, one spouse must pay all or part of their ex’s attorney fees. The family law judge in Texas decides who pays divorce lawyer fees on a case-by-case basis.

Is divorce mediation right for me?

In some situations a judge may require you and your spouse to undergo mediation, especially if your divorce involves children. If you are not required by the court to go through mediation, you may still want to consider it. Mediation allows both parties to discuss their disagreements about the divorce with an impartial third party (or mediator) who can then help them come to an amicable agreement and thereby spare both parties from having to undergo a lengthy court proceeding.
