A contested divorce in Fort Worth, TX takes seven legal steps to complete:

  1. Hire an experienced divorce attorney for effective representation.
  2. Serve a divorce petition to your spouse or have one served to you.
  3. Respond to the petition or receive a response from your spouse.
  4. Go through the discovery process with your divorce attorney.
