How Long Do You Have to Respond after Being Served Divorce Papers in TX?

Answer

You have sixty days to respond after being served divorce papers in the state of Texas. If you do not respond the other party can be granted a default judgment. That is what I did to my ex-husband. He did not respond when he was supposed to so I was granted the divorce by default.
