Texas Divorce and What to Watch for

No one goes into a marriage expecting it to end in divorce, but unfortunately, a staggering percentage of marriages in the United States end prematurely. The situation is particularly vexing in a state like Texas, where the laws are a bit more specific and there are many more stipulations. Though you might feel the need to do whatever you have to in order to get things over quickly and "painlessly," it's important to do your due diligence and hire a local lawyer, like Marshall Davis Brown from TX, to make sure things get done properly.

The main thing you need to look out for in a Texas divorce case is which jurisdiction your case falls in. There are numerous different district courts in the state – to have a divorce in Texas, you need to have lived in the state for six months, at least, and the county for three.

Also, know about the period between the divorce being filed and finalized – this is called temporary orders. During this time, it will be established which spouse will stay in the shared home, who will pay for shared bills, and a visitation schedule if children are involved.

Most importantly, remember that it could take a year or more for a divorce to be finalized. For this reason, it's important to make use of a knowledgeable lawyer to make sure that your temporary orders agreements are satisfactory and that you're getting everything you deserve out of the separation. Furthermore, if there are children involved, you should want the best for them, and a lawyer can help ensure that they get the best support and custody agreement for the situation.
