Texas Divorce Laws
To file for divorce in Texas, you or your spouse must have been a state resident for six continuous months. Additionally, one spouse must have been a resident of the country where the divorce is filed for a minimum of 90 days.
Texas allows “no-fault” divorces, which means that the spouses can end the marriage based on irreconcilable differences, rather than blaming each other for the breakdown of the marriage. However, even a no-fault divorce can end up being hotly contested.
There are two main types of divorce: contested divorce and uncontested divorce. A contested divorce means the spouses cannot agree on one or more terms of the divorce, while an uncontested divorce means the couple agrees on all divorce-related terms.
Common divorce-related issues include:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Property division
- Debt allocation
- Spousal support
There are two forms of uncontested divorce in Texas: agreed divorce and default divorce. An agreed divorce occurs when both parties agree on all issues and are willing to sign the divorce forms. A default divorce is when one party fails to respond to the divorce petition or otherwise appears in court.
An uncontested divorce is typically much simpler and faster compared to contested divorces since the latter can result in court litigation. However, couples involved in a contested divorce have an opportunity to resolve their differences and reach a mutual agreement through divorce mediation. Alas, if both parties cannot reach an agreement, the divorce will ultimately be decided by a judge in court.
