Limited Scope Representation In Texas Divorce And Child Custody Litigation

Limited scope representation can offer a valuable alternative for clients going through Texas divorce or child custody litigation. In most circumstances a retainer of only a few hours of prepaid time is required, as opposed to a more substantial retainer. Limited scope representation permits clients to have more control over the tasks to be performed in their case and, hence, the amount of time and attorney's fees incurred. This article explains limited scope representation, including what it is and the advantages of this arrangement.

Texas House Bill 65--extending The Divorce Waiting Period To 180 Days In Some Cases

Under current Texas law, a divorce may not be granted by the Court until the 61st day after the petition for divorce has been filed. This 60 day waiting period can be waived under certain circumstances. Texas House Bill 65, currently being considered by the Legislature, would increase the waiting period to 180 days if a child is involved and the divorce is sought on insupportability grounds.
