It depends. If you and your spouse are doing things amicably and able to reach an agreement on all terms, your case will not be impacted by the pandemic. A divorce can be conducted from start to finish during the pandemic in the same manner if it is not contested and, therefore, does not require a hearing or trial before the Court. If you can’t agree on a couple of issues and need to have those limited issues ruled on by a Judge, you may be able to have a short videoconference hearing on limited issues. If you can’t agree on anything and need a complete evidentiary hearing with witnesses and documentary evidence, you will have to wait until the Courts fully re-open. At this time, the Courts in Travis County are essentially closed for in-person hearings and trials through May 8 for non-jury trials and August 14 for jury trials with possible extensions of those closures; the Courts in Williamson County are essentially closed for in-person hearings and trials until further order for non-jury trials and until June 30 for jury trials, and the Courts in Hays County are operating under similar orders for the foreseeable future.
