Frisco Divorce FAQs

How Much Does it Cost to File for Divorce in Frisco?

It depends on which courthouse you file with and where you reside. Assuming you are filing for divorce on your own without a lawyer and representing yourself (which we highly discourage), the cost of filing for divorce in Denton County is: $289 “with waiver to be filed”, $297 “with citation”, $305 “with citation + showcause or TRO”, and $313 “with citation, showcause and TRO”. (Source: Denton County District Clerk) The cost to file for divorce in Collin County is $299 according to the Collin County District Clerk’s Office.

 

How Long Does it Take to Get a Divorce in Frisco?

In both Denton & Collin Counties the minimum waiting period before you can go before a judge after filing for divorce is 60 days.

However, depending on the individual circumstances of your case and any disputes that arise, a final divorce decree can sometimes take years to complete. Contact a divorce lawyer in Frisco to help expedite the process if absolutely necessary. However, in most cases it is worth the wait to get the outcome you want (child custody arrangements, visitation, child support, alimony, asset division, etc.)

Do I Have to Wait 90 Days for an Uncontested or Agreed Divorce in Frisco?

Yes you still have to wait the mandatory 90 days before you can see a judge when filing for divorce here, even if both parties agree and the divorce is uncontested. However, you will not need to schedule a hearing in Denton County. Just make sure you show up in court very early, as most of the Denton family courts will not hear uncontested cases after 9:00 am.

 

I Want a Divorce, Can I Restrict My Spouse’s Access From My Bank Account?

It’s complicated. Denton and Collin County have different rules for this behavior, but only Collin County has Standing Orders. Standing Orders restrict both parties from certain activities, including withdrawing money, restricting access to bank accounts, using credit cards, taking children, etc. Collin County requires a sign a copy of standing orders when filing an original divorce petition.

However, in Denton County there are no Standing Orders so the laws regarding asset restriction are slightly more complex. We strongly suggest you speak to a family attorney experienced with divorce and property division before filing or restricting access to your spouse. There may be negative repercussions for your actions, so consulting with a legal team is highly advised.
