The legal process involved for filing divorce begins with the filing of the Petition for Divorce. If you are the one filing the petition, you are recognized as the “Petitioner.” The spouse being served is the “Respondent.” Once the Petition for Divorce is filed, it will be served upon the Respondent. If the Respondent not be easily accessible, special options are available to make sure the process is completed.
After the Petition for Divorce is Filed
Texas requires a minimum 60 day waiting period before your divorce can be completed. If you need more immediate relief, such as temporary child support, temporary spousal support, or provisions regarding use of community property, you may request temporary orders.
