    Legal Grounds for Divorce

    In the state of Texas, divorce can be based as ”fault” or ”no fault.”  In a no fault divorce, the parties are simply stating that the marriage is not salvageable due to ”irreconcilable differences.”  A “fault-based” divorce requires a party to provide the court with a valid reason for the divorce.  In Texas, legal grounds for a fault-based divorce includes the following:

    • Adultery
    • Abandonment
    • Incurable insanity
    • Imprisonment for a felony conviction
    • Cruel and inhuman treatment
