How long will my divorce take?

You have to wait at least 60 days to get your divorce in Texas. There are exceptions to the 60 day waiting period when there is family violence by a spouse. If the exceptions don’t apply you cannot get a divorce before 60 days.

The 60 days are counted as 60 calendar days from the day the divorce is filed. If the 60th day is a holiday, you will go to the next working day.
