Judy Maggio: 

How does the Texas Appeals process work, and what is the timeline for it? We're asking Austin lawyer Jimmy Vaught for this Ask The Lawyers quick question.

Jimmy Vaught: 

There's several sort of timelines, if you will. All the timelines start when a divorce decree is signed by the judge, and essentially, they can actually take up to a year or two, sometimes, to get a decision, which is kind of frustrating for the parties because if the child custody, if there's child custody or some property division, you'd be waiting around for a year and a half or two years sometimes, before you get a decision.
