Divorce Laws in Texas

To file for divorce in Texas, at least one of the spouses must have been a resident of the state for six continuous months and a resident of the county where the divorce is filed for the preceding 90 days.

You can seek a divorce without assigning blame to either spouse. You can simply claim "insupportability," which means the marriage has become insupportable due to discord or conflict that can't be resolved.

There are two main types of divorce: contested and uncontested divorce. A contested divorce occurs when the spouses cannot reach an agreement on one or more key issues related to their divorce, leading to a dispute that needs to be resolved through litigation in court. On the other hand, an uncontested divorce occurs when both spouses mutually agree on all the key issues related to their divorce.

The following are the most important divorce-related issues:

  • Property Division: Texas follows the community property system, which means that property acquired during the marriage is generally considered community property and is subject to division. However, certain assets acquired before the marriage or received as gifts or inheritances may be considered separate property and not subject to division.
  • Child custody: These decisions are made based on the best interests of the child. Joint custody (joint managing conservatorship) is often favored, but sole custody may be awarded if it's in the child's best interest.
  • Child support: Child support in Texas is calculated based on a percentage of the non-custodial parent's income, and the amount may vary depending on the number of children involved.
  • Spousal Support (Alimony): Spousal support may be awarded in Texas, but it's not guaranteed. Courts consider factors like the duration of the marriage, the financial needs of the spouse seeking support, and the ability of the other spouse to pay.

In Williamson County, divorcing couples are required to attend mediation before their case can proceed to trial. Mediation is an attempt to resolve issues like property division and child custody outside of court.

Whether your case is resolved through mediation or you must go to trial to resolve your divorce-related disputes, you must have an experienced lawyer on your side from start to finish.
