What Are The Divorce Laws In Texas?

Every divorce is different. Texas allows both fault and no-fault divorces — which means that one party can blame the other for the breakup of the marriage, on grounds of adultery, cruelty or abandonment.

If a couple shares children, there will be important matters involving child support and custody. Whatever property the spouses own will need to be divided fairly. As Texas is a community property state, most of the property the parties acquired during the marriage will be split evenly.

Texas is also a state that allows alimony in certain instances. While the parties may agree to it, the judge may also order it if the circumstances warrant. This will depend on several factors, and there are limits to what the judge can order and the duration of time for which the spousal support will continue.

How Does The Divorce Process Work?

In Texas, one of the spouses in a divorce will file the original petition for divorce. You will not be at a disadvantage if you are not the one who files, but you need to protect yourself during a divorce. You will need to pay close attention to what the petition states.

You may need to get a temporary restraining order to preserve the assets of the marriage and make arrangements for the children. You might also need to file an answer to the original petition. After you go through the required hearings, and assuming that both spouses agree on the terms, the divorce won't be finalized for at least 60 days. I am here to assist you with this process as well as the other matters along the way.

Recent attempts have been made to complicate different technical aspects of the divorce process in Texas, which is an additional reason that it is imperative that one retains an experienced family law attorney.
