  1. Best answer

    Every courthouse has a law library. The local ones in Collin and Dallas have prove-up questions to finalize your divorce, and some counties have pro se (unrepresented) dockets where the judge will approve of your decree. You should make a trip to the courthouse if you are not going to hire a lawyer and ask the clerks where the law library is and inquire what the local procedures are for an unrepresented client in that district.


  2. The best way to speed it up is to hire a lawyer.


  3. Getting divorced is not like getting married. The paperwork only gets you into court. You'll still need to set the matter for hearing and provide testimony to the Court. You're almost there. I would hire an attorney to help you get over the final hurdles.

    This advice is based upon limited and hypothetical circumstances. For an answer that is specific to your situation, please consult an attorney. The answering of this question does not create an attorney/client relationship, and the poster should seek additional information from qualified legal counsel. Many attorneys, like ours, offer no-cost consultations.
