What are the grounds for divorce in Texas?

In Texas, the courts offer seven options that you can list as grounds for a divorce. There are fault-based grounds for divorce and no-fault-based grounds for divorce. The no-fault-based grounds include:

  • Insupportability
  • Living apart
  • Confinement in a mental hospital

The fault-based grounds include:

  • Cruelty
  • Adultery
  • Felony conviction
  • Abandonment

It is not necessary to prove fault to receive a divorce order.

How much will my divorce cost?

It costs around $250 to $350 to file divorce papers with Texas divorce courts. If you and your spouse wish to work things out privately without the counsel of attorneys, this is the cheapest option for a divorce. However, it is not always wise. Hiring a Texas divorce lawyer might be more expensive, but it can save you money in the long run, especially when it comes to securing a satisfactory asset division agreement. Divorces that are hotly contested, involve litigation, or span months to years can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

What are temporary orders in a divorce?

If a divorce is not yet finalized, then a judge may issue temporary orders for issues such as spousal support, child support and custody. Temporary orders are not supposed to be long-term. The courts issues them so that spouses and children can receive the financial support they need and parents can have a custody plan in place. Once the parties reach a final agreement on these issues or they receive a divorce order in a trial, the temporary orders no longer apply.

How often can I see my children during a divorce?

The most painful part of divorce is that it usually results in parents having less time to spend with their kids. While a divorce is ongoing, you and your ex-spouse may work out a temporary parenting schedule or request that a judge issue one. The amount of time you have for possession and visitation varies depending on your individual circumstances. However, family court judges in Texas prioritize joint conservatorship whenever possible.
