Grounds for Divorce in Texas
The state of Texas recognizes several different grounds for divorce. It can be a good idea to consult with a lawyer to decide which legal route will give you the most favorable outcome. The available grounds in Texas are:
- Living apart
- Conviction of a felony
- Confinement in a mental hospital
The most common ground for filing for divorce is insupportability. This means that a Texas court will grant a divorce if there is significant evidence to indicate that the two spouses are incompatible. This determination could be based upon significantly different views, conflicts, or any other factors that create so much conflict that there is no hope of maintaining a marital relationship. Despite attempts to reconcile their differences through therapy or couples counseling, the couple has not managed to establish a sustainable dynamic.
Types of Divorces
Adams Law Firm has experience representing clients with all kinds of divorces.
- Collaborative divorce – You and your spouse may want to remain outside the court system because you are in agreement about everything.
- Agreed divorce – You agree on most things but you need the input of the courts or mediators in order to tie up the last few points of contention.
- Contested divorce – You and your spouse cannot agree on most things and you need the courts to resolve most aspects of the case.
Regardless of which of these types most accurately describes your situation, we can help you decide which path forward is the best for you and your family via one or more of these methods.
Why Hire a Divorce Attorney?

Preparing for Divorce
Whether you are initiating a divorce or you have just been served with divorce papers, there are a number of important steps to take so that you can prepare for the upcoming process. Of primary importance is collecting the necessary documents, including those related to finances, property, business, and taxes. Also important are the birth certificates of any children you and your spouse may have together, as well as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements you might have. Our team can guide you through this process and can help you work through a full list of the documentation you will need.
Modifying Divorce Agreements and Child Custody Arrangements
In the time after a divorce has been finalized, there may be considerable changes in your circumstances or those of your former spouse. If this is the case, you may require post-divorce modifications. Depending on the life changes involved, such modifications may include spousal or child support, child custody arrangements, and visitation agreements.
