What is a Contested Divorce?

A contested divorce occurs when spouses cannot agree on issues like child custody, spousal support, property division, and more. Unlike an uncontested divorce, where both parties agree on all terms, a contested divorce can involve lengthy negotiations, legal proceedings, and court appearances. Our experienced team at Garcia-Windsor, P.C. has an understanding of the complexities associated with contested divorces. We tirelessly protect your interests, ensuring you receive a just outcome.

Contested Divorce Requirements in Texas

In Texas, specific requirements must be met before a contested divorce can be pursued.

  • Residency: One spouse must have been a resident of Texas for a continuous six-month period before filing for divorce.
  • Filing Grounds: Texas allows both fault and no-fault grounds for divorce. No-fault grounds involve insupportability, meaning irreconcilable differences are causing the marriage to break down. Fault grounds encompass cruelty, adultery, felony conviction, abandonment, and more.
  • Petition: The filing spouse (petitioner) must file a "Petition for Divorce" with the appropriate family court. This document outlines the reasons for the divorce and the desired outcomes regarding property, child custody, and support.

Navigating these legal requirements can be complex, so having a skilled Dallas contested divorce lawyer from Garcia-Windsor, P.C., by your side is crucial. We offer guidance tailored to your specific circumstances, ensuring all necessary documentation is filed correctly and promptly.

How Long Does a Contested Divorce Take?

The duration of a contested divorce can vary significantly based on several factors, including issues involved, the willingness of both parties to cooperate, court availability, and the need for litigation. On average, a contested divorce in Texas can take six months to several years to reach a final resolution.

During this time, our legal team works diligently to expedite the process while prioritizing your best interests. We begin by attempting to negotiate settlements outside of court, utilizing alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation. If a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation, we are fully prepared to advocate for your rights in the courtroom.
