As soon as an Original Petition for Divorce is filed by either party, you have a few options. If you were the one served, you have 20 days to respond. The same goes for your spouse if you are the one who filed.
Hash Out The Details
It can be frustrating going back and forth with a spouse regarding a divorce agreement. In many cases, you have several factors that need to be considered before everyone can feel at peace.
If you're a parent, you may love your children, but you just want out of the marriage. It's understandable and can take a heavy toll on your day-to-day life when a reasonable agreement doesn't seem to be in sight.
The bottom line? You want what's best for you and your family. And there should be no reason to feel bullied, exploited, or backed into a corner to give up your rights and settle for less than you deserve.

It can be a lot to handle when you're dealing with elements such as child custody, child support, alimony, and other life-changing factors.
After a divorce has been filed and both parties agree, it can take 60 days to be considered final. However, if there are issues or both parties cannot reach an agreement, it could take much longer than 60 days. In Texas, there is a 60-day waiting period before the divorce can be offficially filed.
The state of Texas will grant a divorce based on “marital fault”. At-fault conditions include the following:
- Infidelity Or Adultery
- Abandonment For A Year Or Longer
- Domestic Violence
- Mental Incapacitation Or Cruelty
- Felony Convictions
You may also choose to file a divorce where no one is at fault, called “no-fault”.
It depends. A 50/50 split of all assets is not required, and each party and their income, needs, children involved, and several other conditions are taken into account to determine a fair distribution of assets.
Usually, community property (assets obtained during marriage), including money and property, are divided equally. Keep in mind that debt accrued during the marriage is also typically divided equally.
