Texas Divorce Grounds

All states allow for no-fault divorces, which are divorces based on the fact that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and can no longer be supported. Some states are exclusively “no-fault” divorce states, meaning they don’t allow for the consideration of faults in a divorce. Texas offers divorce based on both "no-fault" and "fault" divorce grounds. The reasons are as follows:

  • Insupportability (“no-fault”)
  • Separated for at least three years
  • Mentally instability that requires at least three years in a mental hospital and no hope for a cure
  • Cruelty
  • Abandonment for at least one year
  • A felony conviction that requires imprisonment for at least one year
  • Adultery that can be proved

Contact our firm for more information regarding these divorce grounds and to get advice regarding your specific situation.

Contested vs Uncontested Divorce in Texas

In the unfortunate event that you need to file for divorce, there will usually be a variety of decisions that must be made. One of these decisions is whether your divorce will be contested or uncontested.

In a nutshell, when both parties cannot agree on the terms of divorce it becomes contested. These terms can include issues such as custody, asset division, spousal support, etc. Since this type of divorce can be rather complex, a court hearing will be required.

If both parties can find a common ground and agree to the terms, then the divorce becomes uncontested. This type of divorce is recommended to those who want a smoother and quicker process, without a court hearing. It can also take half the time when compared to a contested divorce.

Texas Divorce FAQs

What are the residency requirements for divorce in Texas?

To file for divorce in Texas, at least one of the spouses must be a state resident for 6 months or more. Additionally, one of the spouses must be a resident for at least 90 days in the county where the couple is filing for divorce.

How long does divorce take to finalize in Texas?

The length of the divorce process is going to vary depending on the case. Whether or not the divorce is contested or uncontested will impact the time it takes to finalize the divorce. If it is a contested divorce, then the complexities of the disputable matters will also affect the divorce timeline. Technically, a divorce can be finalized in Texas 60 days after the petition is filed. Realistically, a divorce will often take 6 months to 1 year or longer.

Does Texas allow for annulments?

Yes, Texas does have a process for annulment when there is a legal deficiency in the marriage. Examples of these legal deficiencies include:

  • One of the spouses was underage
  • One of the spouses was under the influence
  • One of the spouses is impotent
  • One of the spouses is mentally incapacitated
