Divorce and the Texas
If you are filing for divorce Texas law requires a 60 days waiting period. This is explained in Section 6.702 of the Texas Family Code.
“Sec. 6.702. WAITING PERIOD. (a) Except as provided by Subsection (c), the court may not grant a divorce before the 60th day after the date the suit was filed. A decree rendered in violation of this subsection is not subject to collateral attack. (b) A waiting period is not required before a court may grant an annulment or declare a marriage void other than as required in civil cases generally.
(c) A waiting period is not required under Subsection (a) before a court may grant a divorce in a suit in which the court finds that:
1) the respondent has been finally convicted of or received deferred adjudication for an offense involving family violence as defined by Section 71.004 against the petitioner or a member of the petitioner's household; or
(2) the petitioner has an active protective order under Title 4 or an active magistrate's order for emergency protection under Article 17.292, Code of Criminal Procedure, based on a finding of family violence, against the respondent because of family violence committed during the marriage.” See Texas Family Code Section 6.702.
