How Does Divorce Work in Texas?

In order to start a divorce, you must have been a resident in Texas for at least 6 months before filing for divorce. To start, you might file a Petition for Divorce with the District Court. A judge will typically wait 60 days before making a final divorce decree.

Texas Grounds for Divorce

A final divorce decree may change your matter involves extenuating circumstances such as domestic violence. You do not need to establish fault in Texas to get a divorce (a “no-fault” divorce). If you have grounds for a fault divorce, you may be entitled to more from your shared assets as compensation for your spouse’s mistreatment.

Some grounds for fault divorce include:

  • Domestic abuse
  • Adultery
  • Verbal abuse and cruelty
  • One spouse has been convicted of a felony
  • Your spouse abandoned you for a year
  • You have lived apart for at least 3 years
  • Your spouse has been confined to a mental institution for at least 3 years

How Does An Annulment Work in Texas?

There are also circumstances that would lead to the annulment of your marriage rather than a divorce. Annulments are generally simpler than divorces and essentially makes it so that the marriage never existed in the first place, from a legal standpoint. Marrying while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, marrying someone who did not inform you they were previously married, and marriages that have only been in effect for less than 72 hours are just a few qualifiers for an annulment.

Protect What's Important to You

Once you have come to terms that divorce is happening, it’s time to start thinking about your future. Dividing property and assets is a complicated process, and you will want a knowledgeable attorney helping you figure out a fair arrangement. If you have children, determining child custody will be another major issue.

Whether you decide to work out the terms of your divorce amicably in an uncontested divorce, or will need to go to court for a contested divorce, our capable divorce attorney in Dallas can provide you with the compassionate and dedicated representation you deserve.
