How Fast Can I Be Divorced in Texas?

Waiting Period for Divorce in Texas

In general, you can’t get a divorce faster than 61 days in Texas. There is a 60-day waiting period for a divorce. The waiting period begins from the date that the petition for divorce is filed. The earliest you can be divorced is 61 days after filing the petition for divorce.

Exceptions to the Waiting Period

If there has been family violence, the waiting period may be modified to allow for the divorce to happen more quickly.

Hire an Attorney

As a San Antonio divorce attorney, I know that the only people who get divorced on that 61st day are typically couples who have agreed on everything and have an uncontested divorce. The more couples fight, especially over custody, the longer their divorce case lasts. Each case is different and unique, so it is best to discuss your individual timeline for divorce with a San Antonio Divorce Attorney.
