Consider a Collaborative Divorce
A traditional divorce proceeding that involves going to court can be time-consuming and financially and emotionally draining. If you and your spouse believe that you can work out a settlement on divorce-related issues on your own but still want legal protection, collaborative divorce may be a suitable option.
This type of divorce is designed to bring about a settlement that satisfies the needs of both individuals. It can also promote the continuation of a healthy, functional relationship between the parties after the divorce.

What Are Grounds for Divorce in Texas?
Texas allows for a couple to file for divorce based on both “no-fault” and “fault” grounds. A no-fault divorce in Texas would be filed under “insupportability”. This basically means that the marriage can’t be supported any longer due to a conflict in personality between the spouses and no hope of reconciliation. This is the simplest ground to file divorce on since it doesn’t require proving any fault in the other spouse.
There are several “faults” that divorce can be based on in Texas. These include:
- Felony (imprisoned for at least one year)
- Abandonment (for at least one year)
- Separation (for at least three years)
- Mental hospital confinement
Another requirement to consider when filing for divorce in Texas is the residency requirement. A spouse must be a Texas resident for at least 6 months and a resident of a county in Texas for 90 days before filing for divorce. Furthermore, after the divorce is filed, it can’t be finalized for at least 60 days.
