What is the waiting period for getting a divorce?

In Texas, a court may not grant a divorce before the 60th day after the date the divorce lawsuit is filed. This "waiting period" is intended to give the divorcing spouses some time to decide whether they really want a divorce or were just acting in the heat of the moment. Although we have not often had spouses reconcile during this waiting period, it has occurred on a few occasions with our divorce clients. If you are looking for a quick, agreed divorce, it is helpful to remember that the divorce waiting period is not going to let you enter a decree immediately.
