Divorce Laws in Texas
To file for divorce in Texas, either spouse needs to be living in the state for a continuous six-month period. In addition, one spouse must have been a resident of the county where the divorce is filed for at least 90 days (about three months).
Married couples can file for a “no-fault” divorce, which is for spouses who are no longer able to get along and live together because of irreconcilable differences – without having to blame each other for ending the marriage. Yet, a no-fault divorce can result in a heated legal dispute.
There are two main forms of divorce: contested divorce and uncontested divorce. A contested divorce occurs when both parties cannot agree on one or more divorce-related issues. In contrast, an uncontested divorce means there are no disagreements on all terms of the divorce.
The following are common terms of a divorce:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Property division
- Debt allocation
An uncontested divorce can either mean an agreed divorce or a default divorce. An agreed divorce simply means the spouses agree about all divorce-related terms and are willing to sign the divorce paperwork, while a default divorce means one party does not respond to the divorce petition or fails to appear in court.
Uncontested divorces are generally faster and less costly than contested divorces because the spouses avoid court litigation. However, couples can agree to participate in divorce mediation, in which an unbiased third party encourages communication between the parties in order to resolve their differences and reach a final agreement without going to court. But, if both parties cannot agree on all divorce-related terms, then a judge will decide on all issues.
