How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce in Houston?

Parties in Texas must wait at least 60 days from the date the divorce petition is filed to finalize their divorce. In some cases, the process may take longer, especially if the parties have significant assets, have minor children, or cannot agree on the terms of their divorce.

Some of the factors that can influence the timeline of a divorce include:

  • The court's schedule
  • Whether the parties can agree on the terms of their divorce
  • Whether the parties have minor children
  • Whether the parties have significant assets

At ALP Law Firm, we understand how important it is for you to move on with your life, and we are here to help you complete the divorce process as quickly and efficiently as possible.

What Are the Child Custody Laws in Houston?

If you and your spouse are getting a divorce in Houston and you have children, you will need to determine who your children will live with, how much time they will spend with each parent, and who will have the right to make decisions on their behalf.

If you and your spouse cannot agree on these issues, a judge will have to decide for you. In Texas, judges are required to make decisions regarding child custody based on the best interests of the child.

Some of the factors that a judge will consider when determining the best interests of the child include:

  • Each parent's ability to provide for the needs of the child
  • The child's physical, emotional, and medical needs
  • Each parent's willingness to encourage a positive relationship between the child and the other parent
  • Each parent's ability to care for the child
  • Each parent's ability to provide a safe and stable environment for the child
  • Any history of domestic violence or abuse

At ALP Law Firm, we understand how important your children are to you, and we are here to help you fight for the best interests of your child.
