How Long Do You Have to Be Separated in Texas Before Divorce?

Texas is one of the few states that doesn't require a separation period before divorce. However, suppose a couple wants to use living apart as grounds for divorce. In that case, they must have lived separately for at least three years. Living separately and apart means living in different residences.

Who Qualifies for Spousal Support in Texas?

In Texas, you must be married for ten years to get spousal maintenance. A spouse must prove they tried while the divorce is pending to earn enough money to support themselves diligently, or the spouse seeking support has a disability that occurred during the marriage, making it impossible for them to be self-sufficient.
