If spouses have mutually agreed to divorce, the process can actually be completed in as little as 60 days from the day of filing. This assumes, however, that all terms of divorce have been agreed upon.
Houston Uncontested Divorce Lawyer — The Process For Filing An Uncontested Divorce In Texas
One spouse (or his or her attorney) will file the original petition for divorce and deliver a copy to the other spouse. In Texas, the couple must wait at least 60 days before a decree can be entered. After this time, one or both parties will appear in court with the agreed upon decree of divorce that addresses all aspects of their children's lives (if any) and their assets. At this point, the divorce decree will be signed by a judge.
