Houston, TX asked in Divorce for Texas

Q: My partner filed for divorce but refused to follow through. Now i want the divorce. Do i have to start all over again.

We have been separated since jan 2 2018 but decided working things out since January 2019. It's gotten really terrible again and i want out finally. Do i have to start the divorce process all over again or just get the final divorce decree, sign it and turn it in? My partner already filed for divorce in July last year, papers signed. Came with final divorce decree this January and begged for us to get back together, so we didn't finish the divorce by turning in the final divorce decree. Now we're having even more complicated issues. What do i do? I want out asap

A: You can still pursue the divorce if you have pleadings on file yourself. It is unlikely that you filed the appropriate paperwork. Since you have a lot going on then I would suggest that you retain an attorney to finalize the case for you. We can assist you if you desire. 888-343-4529
