When You Need a Divorce Lawyer

There are plenty of articles online that tout the ease of “Do-It-Yourself Divorce.” While the price point may be enticing to some people, going through your divorce without the advice of a divorce attorney could wind up costing you more in the end. Commonly people who choose to file for divorce without an attorney forget to address certain aspects such as credit card or medical debt. Another pitfall you could face is overestimating or underestimating the value of your property and other assets.

When you choose to work with our experienced Dallas divorce lawyer, you can rest assured she can help you find proven solutions for the following divorce matters:

Grounds for Filing Divorce in Texas

In Texas, there are seven grounds for divorce that couples can file. A lawful ground for divorce is one which both parties can agree upon and can prove. If both parties cannot agree on grounds for divorce, then they must be willing to prove to the court their grounds are true.

Lawful grounds for divorce in Texas include:

  1. No Fault – if the decision to divorce is mutual, then you can file for no-fault divorce
  2. Infidelity – should a spouse commit adultery you may file for divorce on these grounds.
  3. Living Apart – If spouses have lived apart for more than three consecutive years, you can file for divorce based on these grounds.
  4. Abandonment – when a spouse leaves with the intention to abandon their spouse and they have remained gone for more than 1 year; you can file for divorce under abandonment grounds in Texas.
  5. Felony Conviction – If during the marriage your spouse is convicted of a felony or they have been imprisoned for more than 1 year you may file for divorce.
  6. Cruelty - a court may consider granting a divorce on cruelty grounds if they find that one spouse has made cohabitation impossible due to physical or verbal abuse.
  7. Prolonged Confinement in a Mental Hospital – confinement of at least three years in a mental institution is considered grounds for divorce.
