Grounds for Divorce in Texas

In the state of Texas, there are a few different reasons that you can state as grounds for divorce. Depending on your situation, it can be important to work with an attorney to determine which may be the best legal route to take. Grounds for divorce in Texas include:

  • Living apart
  • Insupportability
  • Cruelty
  • Adultery
  • Conviction of a felony
  • Abandonment
  • Confinement in a mental hospital

The most common ground for divorce is the claim of insupportability, which means that a court can grant a divorce if evidence is proven that the two spouses cannot reach agreeable terms in their relationship. In these cases, the couple may have attempted to salvage the marriage through counseling or marital support but simply could not succeed together.

Types of Divorces

Our firm assists clients who can agree on everything and want to remain outside the court system (collaborative divorce), those who can agree on almost everything and simply need the input of mediators or the court system to resolve the last few items of contention (agreed divorce), and those who cannot agree on much of anything and need to take their case before a judge or jury to have the case resolved (contested divorce). We are here to guide you in your determination of the best path forward for you and your family and can help you accomplish your goals using one or more of the methods described above. Do not hesitate to contact our team today to speak with a Katy divorce attorney and ensure that you receive the support you need during your divorce proceedings.

Reasons to Hire a Divorce Attorney

Divorce can be an incredibly complex process with a myriad of applicable laws, deadlines, and paperwork – all of which can carry a large margin for error. Even simple clerical mistakes when filing divorce papers can have massive consequences, resulting in setbacks or even causing you to lose out on a portion of your entitled marital property. At Adams Law Firm, we are intimately familiar with the process of divorce and can help you navigate through its complexities with accuracy and utmost care.

Our divorce lawyers can provide the following services and benefits:
  • Gathering necessary documents
  • Accurately and promptly completing paperwork
  • Presenting dispute resolution options
  • Meeting all legal deadlines
  • Protecting your assets
  • Negotiating child custody arrangements
  • Preparing visitation orders
  • Accompanying you to court-appointed conferences
  • Informing you of all developments in your case

Helping You Prepare for Divorce

If you are considering divorce, or if you have just been served with divorce papers, it is vital you take certain steps to prepare for the road to come. Your first priority should be to get organized and begin collecting the necessary documentation. This includes financial documents, property deeds, bank statements, birth certificates of any children you and your spouse may share, business documents, tax returns, and any prenuptial or postnuptial agreements you may have. Our attorneys can help you with this process and provide you with a full list of required documents.

In addition, it is important you watch what you say and do during this time, especially online. Electronic communications such as text messages, social media posts, and emails can be submitted as evidence during divorce and impact the outcome of divorce proceedings. For example, badmouthing your spouse on Facebook or posting photos with a new significant other during divorce can prompt a judge to favor your spouse and see you in an unsavory light, potentially impacting issues such as spousal support, asset distribution, or even child custody. As a general rule of thumb, do not post or send anything that you would not want a judge to see.

Modifying Your Divorce Arrangement

While a divorce decree carries the enforceability of law, it is by no means set in stone forever. Post-divorce modifications may be issued if a considerable change in circumstances should present itself for either spouse. Issues that may be renegotiated include spousal support, child custody arrangements, child support, and visitation.

A modification may be requested for numerous reasons, including:
  • Loss of Employment
  • Substantial Increase or Decrease in Income
  • Remarriage of a Spouse
  • Illness or Disability
  • Criminal Incarceration
  • Relocation of a Spouse

The Impact of Divorce on Your Children

Most parents’ main concern during divorce is the impact their separation will have on their children’s lives. As family dynamics shift and parents change residences, it is imperative to keep in mind the best interests of your children during this tumultuous time. At Adams Law Firm, our Katy custody lawyers understand fully the importance of your children’s safety and happiness and are prepared to do everything within our power to ensure a smooth transition for them during your divorce. From determining child custody to negotiating visitation arrangements, we are prepared to make every effort to secure an outcome that ensures their wellbeing and protects your right to maintain an active presence in their lives.
