Grounds for Divorce in Texas

Because each state has its own laws regarding divorce, you will want an attorney who is well-versed in Texas’s laws. To build the strongest case possible, make sure that your lawyer has experience representing divorcees specifically in our state.

In Texas, the seven grounds for divorce include:

  • Insupportability: The only reason for divorce that both parties must agree on, insupportability refers to unresolvable disagreements that are preventing the marriage from working.
  • Cruelty: When your spouse treats you cruelly and forces the marriage to end.
  • Adultery: Divorce spurred by a cheating spouse.
  • Conviction of a felony: When your spouse is convicted of a felony in Texas and is serving a minimum of one year in prison. This reason does not apply if your spouse receives a pardon.
  • Confinement in a mental hospital: Divorce due to your spouse’s confinement to a private or state mental hospital for a minimum of three years.
  • Living apart: If you and your spouse have been separated and living apart for at least three years, you can file for divorce on these grounds.
  • Abandonment: You can use abandonment as your reason for divorce if your spouse has been gone for at least a year and has no intentions of returning to you.

Whichever grounds upon which you are filing your divorce, you can trust that we have experience handling a case just like yours.

Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

Is your divorce contested or uncontested? Either way, our firm can help. An uncontested divorce is one that both partners have agreed on and that lacks significant disputes in regards to assets and property. Conversely, a contested divorce occurs when the partners don’t agree on the grounds for divorce or the distribution of assets. Contested divorces require more meticulous work to resolve, as all assets and property need to be identified and characterized.

Factors that may complicate an uncontested divorce include:

  • Minor children
  • Children’s educational needs, such as private schooling and daycare
  • International travel
  • Multiple homes
  • Business ownership

No matter your circumstances, the Law Office of Erica P. Rios can help you sort out your divorce.
