Uncontested Divorce Process

The information we provide is a snapshot of the uncontested Texas divorce filing process. This is not meant to be a step by step process because our experience has shown us that each case is unique and doesn’t always meet the guidelines set forth below.

The divorce process in Texas begins when the petitioner has the respondent served with the Original Petition for Divorce along with a Notice of Service. The papers are normally served by the Sheriff, a Constable or process service company.  The Notice tells the respondent he or she has 20 days plus the following Monday to respond to the Petition. The respondent may elect to waive service in writing or decide to not file any answer in which case following the 60 day waiting period, the Court will issue a final decree granting the divorce.

At the time you file for divorce in Texas, you as the petitioner or the respondent (your ex) must have resided in Texas for the preceding six (6) month period and be a resident of the county you’re filing in for the preceding ninety (90) day period.

If you’re filing for a No-Fault divorce you must either:

  • provide the grounds as to why you’re ending the marriage. Simply put, you need to document that the marriage is no longer supportable because of personality issues and that there is no reason to believe that the marriage can be reconciled
  • indicate on your filing that you and your ex have lived separately for the last 3 months and that there has been no cohabitation
