Divorce

By: Ramos Law Group, PLLC  01/07/2016

A contested divorce in Houston occurs when the spouses cannot reach an agreement on one or more issues related to the divorce. The contested divorce process including filing an original petition for divorce, mediation on Temporary, temporary orders hearing, final mediation and final trial. This is a simplistic explanation of the process but should serve as a good starting point. Important Tip: Consider the entire divorce process a business transaction. This approach can make a different between spending a few hundred dollars with an uncontested divorce to spending over ten thousand for a highly contested matter. Filing an Original Petition for Divorce Timeframe for a Contested Divorce: There is no set amount of time; it really depends on the parties involved and the circumstances of the case. For an uncontested Houston divorce, the total time from filing to finalization could be as short as 61 days, the state mandated waiting period for a divorce. For a contested divorce trial, it depends on how litigious the parties are, the county that the divorce was filed in, and how busy the district court is at the time of filing. A divorce often averages 6 months to a year. The divorce lawyers at Ramos Law Group, PLLC always aim to complete the process as efficiently as possible.
