Texas Divorce: What to Know About the Process

Fault vs. No-Fault Divorce

Under Texas law, a married couple can seek a no-fault divorce on the grounds of insupportability. By proving that there is discord or conflict of personalities—which is not difficult—a couple can get divorced without the court assigning blame. Most Southeast Texas divorces are finalized on no-fault grounds. If you want a quick and easy divorce or a cheap divorce, a no-fault divorce is likely the answer. 

To be clear, a no-fault divorce is not the only option available in Texas. Married couples can still seek a separation on fault-based grounds in our region. While less common, some grounds for a fault divorce include adultery, cruel treatment, abandonment of at least one year, and a felony criminal conviction resulting in jail time. 

Contested Divorce and Uncontested Divorce

When a divorcing couple is able to reach an agreement on all relevant issues, they can obtain an uncontested divorce. Texas courts give divorcing couples wide discretion to resolve their own issues. By reaching a full divorce settlement, you and your spouse will be able to save time and money. 

Of course, an agreement is not possible in every case. A contested divorce is one that is headed for litigation. While the case may still be settled before a trial, parties to a contested divorce need a strong attorney in their corner. We represent clients in both contested and uncontested divorce proceedings in Baytown, Texas. 

How to File for Divorce in Baytown, TX

To file for divorce in Texas, you must submit an Original Petition for Divorce in the appropriate court. Whether you are filing in Harris County or Chambers County, it is important that you get the paperwork right. With an uncontested divorce, our Baytown, TX family lawyer can help you file for a quick and easy separation. Parties can waive their rights to notice and the process can move forward in the more efficient, cost effective manner. 

If you are considering filing for a contested divorce or if you were already served with divorce papers, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced Baytown divorce attorney as soon as possible. We will review your case, explain your options, and help you take immediate action to protect your rights.
