What Are Grounds for Divorce in Texas?
There are several grounds for divorce in Texas. All states, including Texas, include a no-fault option for divorce. However, Texas has additional “fault” grounds for divorce, while some states only offer no-fault divorce.
A no-fault divorce in Texas is filed under the reason of “insupportability”, which simply means that the marriage can no longer be supported due to a discord in personality between the spouses. It does not require proving any type of fault in the other spouse.
The fault divorce options that Texas offers include:
- Separation (for at least three years)
- Confinement in a mental hospital and deemed incurable (for at least three years)
- Desertion (for at least one year)
- Felony conviction
- Proven adultery
