In Texas divorces, frequently the parties to a case must attend what is known as a hearing. A hearing is basically an opportunity for you and your spouse to address issues going on in your case and to present evidence in support of arguments or positions that you are asserting. These hearings occur in a courtroom with the judge, court reporter and attorneys present. Sometimes these hearings can occur via Zoom for convenience purposes.
A Notice of Oral Hearing must be filed with the court and served upon your spouse prior to the hearing. If your spouse has an attorney, it is likely that you can email or fax his or her attorney rather than by a process server or sheriff. The Notice will require that you disclose the date, time, and location of the hearing.
