Contested and Uncontested Divorces
Divorces can be difficult and emotionally draining. With the addition of children and assets, things can be even more complicated and problematic. The Davis Legal Group can guide you through the divorce process and help you determine which routes enable you to reach your goals and protect your future. Some Texas couples are more fortunate than others and they easily agree on all terms of the divorce, such as property division, child custody, possession and access, and child support. If you and your spouse are able to come up with an agreement, you are eligible to file an uncontested divorce, which saves you ample time and money. If you are considering an uncontested/agreed divorce, our experienced Plano Divorce Attorneys can help you with an Uncontested Divorce.
If, however, you and your spouse cannot agree on everything right from the start, you may contact our Plano Divorce Attorneys and schedule a FREE case evaluation, and our attorneys will provide insight into possible case outcomes, discuss how to protect your rights, children, and property, and will help you determine the best course of action in resolving your case efficiently. Call today at (469) 910-0085.

What to Expect During the Divorce Process
Although no divorce is exactly the same, there are a few things that are required in every divorce case. Our Plano Divorce Lawyers and in Plano and Carrollton, Texas can help you through the process and discuss all of the requirements in full.
Before you can begin a divorce, you must meet the Texas Jurisdictional Requirements for a Divorce:
The Texas Jurisdictional Requirements to File a Divorce
- You or your spouse must be a Texas resident for at least 6 Months.
- You or your spouse must have resided in the same Texas County for 90 Days.
How Long will It Take to Finalize the Divorce?
At a minimum it takes 60 days from the date your divorce is filed before you can even try to finalize your divorce. Unless, your divorce is uncontested, there is little chance it will be finalized at the end of the 60 day period, however.
If your case is contested it can take much longer. It is best to assume 8 months to a year and perhaps much longer if you and your spouse have a complicated Texas estate, particularly if you are fighting over custody of the children.
What Happens While A Divorce is Pending?
Normally, a hearing will be held in most contested cases known as a “Temporary Orders Hearing.” At that hearing, the judge will make decisions that could involve the following:
- Child Custody
- Restraining Orders
- Property Possession
- Payments of Bills and Expenses
- Spousal Support
- Child Support
- Custody Evaluations
- Drug Testing
- Expert Appointments
- Attorneys Fees and Costs
- And anything else that affects the children and the marital estate
