What Are the Grounds for Filing for Divorce in Texas?

Do you have any questions about how to file for divorce in Texas? In the state of Texas, you have the option of filing on grounds of either "fault" or "no fault." This means that you can either prove that one of the state's fault-based grounds for divorce is true, or you can get a divorce based on irreconcilable differences.

According to Texas Family Code §6.001-6.008, the grounds for divorce in Texas include:

  • Insupportability (irreconcilable differences)
  • Cruelty
  • Adultery
  • Conviction of felony
  • Abandonment
  • Living apart (for at least three years)
  • Confinement of the other spouse in a mental hospital (for at least three years)

Before a divorce can be filed in Texas, at least one of the spouses must have been living within the state for at least six months. Furthermore, at least one of the spouses must have lived in the county where the divorce is being filed for 90 days or longer. The divorce finalization process goes much more quickly if both parties are able to agree on their divorce terms. If they are not able to agree, the spouses will have to handle the matter through litigation, which can extend the length of time the divorce takes.
