What Are Legal Grounds For Divorce In Texas?

In Texas, you must allege grounds for your divorce.  Grounds are as follows:

  • Insupportability – This is what the majority of divorces allege. In its simplest form, it means that the marriage is no longer supportable and/or you are no longer willing to be supportive of it.
  • Adultery
  • Abandonment
  • Severe Mental Disability
  • Imprisonment for over one year
  • Cruel  treatment.

Once you make the decision to divorce, a petition for divorce must be filed and the other party must be served. From the date of filing, you must wait at least sixty (60) days before your divorce can be granted. In Texas it is called the “cooling off period”.

As part of the divorce proceeding, a fair and equitable property division should occur of all community property and a child custody order be created in a marriage with children. While we always encourage parties to reach an agreement where they can, we are on your side when an agreement cannot be reached and will be ready to advocate for your what you are entitled to in a Court of law.
