Texas appears to have no pre-filing waiting period.
The waiting period is between the date that the petition is filed and the date that the dissolution can be effective.
As I explained previously, parties can submit all the paperwork beforehand and have the dissolution entered, effective on the 61st day.
Here is a link to a pretty good explaination for TX: CLICK HERE.
Here is the text of the statute:
Texas Family Code Sec. 6.702. WAITING PERIOD. (a) The court may not grant a divorce before the 60th day after the date the suit was filed. A decree rendered in violation of this subsection is not subject to collateral attack.
(b) A waiting period is not required before a court may grant an annulment or declare a marriage void other than as required in civil cases generally.
Added by Acts 1997, 75th Leg., ch. 7, Sec. 1, eff. April 17, 1997.
