No-Fault Divorce Versus Fault Grounds for Divorce in Texas

In Texas, no-fault divorce is the norm. To obtain a no-fault divorce, you simply state that the marriage is insupportable because of conflict or discord. However, Texas has retained several "fault" grounds for divorce which can be alleged. Although fault need not be proven to obtain a divorce, the court may consider fault in dividing the community property and in awarding custody and visitation. For more information about Texas divorce law, including the difference between contested and uncontested divorce, please visit our Texas Divorce Information Center.

Careful Consideration of All Aspects of Your Divorce

Property division — In any divorce, the first step in dividing the marital assets is to identify property and determine whether it is community or separate property. The next step is to accurately value the marital property and come up with a property settlement that ensures our client receives a fair share of the community property. We have significant experience representing clients who have — or are married to spouses who have — high net worth. We enlist forensic accountants and investigators when necessary to trace hidden assets in divorces where our clients suspect financial fraud.

Child custody and visitation — We work to help clients create parenting plans outlining conservatorship and possession provisions which are in the best interest of the children and the parents.

Child support and spousal maintenance — Determining appropriate child support under the Texas child support guidelines often depends on correctly calculating the non-custodial parent's income and resources. In certain cases where a husband or wife is financially dependent upon the other spouse, temporary alimony, or spousal support, may be awarded to help them become employed and self-supporting.
