Divorce in Texas

Texas provides various grounds for divorce as well as a no-fault option which is the most common type in the state. In a no-fault divorce, you base your divorce on irreconcilable differences or what is called “insupportability.” Either spouse can file for this with the court without having to explain it to the other. No-fault also means that neither of you has to prove any type of marital misconduct that led to the divorce.

Texas Family Code also provides fault-based grounds for divorce. These include:

  • Adultery
  • Cruelty/abuse of all types
  • Abandonment
  • Felony convictions with imprisonment of at least a year
  • Mental illness/confinement in a mental hospital for a minimum of three years
  • Living apart for at least three years

Divorces can be either uncontested or contested. If you and your spouse can agree on all relevant issues, such as child custody, child support, the division of marital property and debt, and alimony/spousal support, you can submit your settlement agreements to the court for approval. 

However, even in a no-fault divorce, disputes may arise over the above issues. If you and your spouse cannot successfully negotiate the terms, your case will go to trial where a judge will rule based on evidence presented. 

Residency Requirements

The residency requirements for a Texas divorce include either spouse having lived in the state for the previous six months and having lived in the county where it is filed for the previous 90 days. 

How Is Property Divided in a Texas Divorce?

Texas is one of a few states that operates on the “community property” rule. This means that property and debts are divided on a 50-50 basis between spouses. However, other factors may complicate this matter which will be reviewed by the court. It is best to consult our Victoria County divorce lawyer to understand how this issue affects your particular situation.
