Katy Perry and Russell Brand were divorced this week, ending their 14 month marriage. Even though the couple reached a divorce settlement months ago, California law requires couples to wait 6 months before they can be officially divorced.
Thankfully for Texas residents, a Texas court can dissolve your marriage only 60 days, 1/3 of the time, after a Petition for Divorce is filed. There are exceptions to this waiting period for cases of domestic violence. Parties can get into court sooner than the 60 days through Temporary Orders hearings if they need more immediate relief, such as child custody and visitation provisions or support.
If you are ready or in need of a divorce, the experienced and dedicated attorneys and team at Hegwood & Associates are ready to guide you through the process as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
