Do I Have to Prove Fault to Get a Divorce in TX?

Are you planning to file for divorce here in Austin, or anywhere throughout the state of Texas? Are you wondering whether you need to prove fault before being able to get a divorce? When a married couple is no longer compatible or able to get along, it is highly likely that couple is headed for divorce.

There is no need to prove fault when filing for a divorce in Texas. State laws allow individuals to file for a "no-fault" divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. In cases where one party's actions are responsible for the marriage coming to an end, proving fault could have a significant impact on how the court will consider the equitable distribution of marital property. Adultery, spousal abuse, abandonment and long-term incarceration are all grounds for a fault divorce.
