After your petition for divorce has been filed, Texas law requires a 60-day waiting period in order for the divorce to be finalized, even if it is uncontested. During this time, you or your spouse may file temporary orders to create parameters of conduct during the divorce process. After their establishment, the parties may engage in discovery. This means obtaining oral testimony and information via written requests, as well as relevant documents and information on issues including the parties’ tax information, witnesses, legal theories, finances, personal property or real estate.
We will help you secure and analyze documents and information that will help your case if you wish to address issues such as alimony, child custody, child support or fault. We will also help send formal requests that will provide additional evidence to help better present your claim.
