How long can a divorce go on without any action on their part? Can I file a complaint with the BAR Association?

Asked 11 months ago - Floresville, TX

My wife has filed in Wilson County for divorce.
I have not received any paperwork from her attorney.
Her attorney will not return any of my phone calls about the status of the paperwork.
How long can this go on without any action on their part?
Is her attorney required to give me a status on the paperwork.
Can I file a complaint with the BAR Association?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Her attorney doesn't owe you any status updates. All you are entitled to is service of all pleadings, motions and answers her attorney files regarding the divorce. If you do not understand what is going on or what you should be doing then you probably need to hire your own lawyer.
