What are the grounds for divorce?

Texas is a “no-fault” divorce state. That means that you can file for divorce simply because “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities between you that has destroyed the legitimate ends of the marriage.” There are other reasons for divorce in Texas, such as adultery, cruelty, felony conviction, abandonment, etc.

We encourage our clients to choose the “no-fault” option because it's much harder to reach an agreed settlement after you've called your spouse an adulterer or something else in public. It also makes it much harder to co-parent in the future after a combative divorce.
