Sorry, I thought I was on a Texas help site. I'm in Texas, Grayson County. My husband and I were married for 3 years. I have a daughter from a previous marriage. He has no children and decided he does not want children of any kind in his life, even a step-child. There is absolutely no chance for a reconciliation. We filed for an uncontested divorce on August 18. I've been in negotiations for a mortgage but must close on the mortgage by September 30 otherwise the special funding will be null and void costing me thousands more to purchase the home.
Is there a way to waive the 60 day waiting period for a divorce to become final in the state of Texas?
Thank you and please click accept so that I may be paid for my answer to you. Thank you for using Just Answer.
The title company has said that I would have to include his debt information, but not his income, with my loan. At closing he would sign a Quit Claim Deed relinquishing all rights. The problem is that his debt is so high that my loan would be rejected. I have very little debt of my own and adding his debt to my mortgage would ruin my credit and I'd be back to square one.
I appreciate your answer. Thanks.
