Do I need a reason to divorce?

For the first 100 years of Texas as a state, to get a divorce granted, one of the spouses had to be at fault or responsible for the breakdown in the marriage. It wasn’t until 1969 that a non-fault ground was introduced: “insupportability.” Since then, most divorces in Texas have been granted because there is “discord or conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.” In simpler terms, a spouse must request a divorce, and a court will divorce the parties.

Despite the addition of the no-fault ground to Texas divorce laws, the state still allows these grounds:

Is no-fault the same as uncontested?

A no-fault divorce is not the same as an uncontested divorce. In a no-fault divorce, the grounds for divorce are not trying to put specific blame on someone, but there can still be plenty of disagreements between the two spouses. In an uncontested divorce, neither spouse disagrees with the agreements outlined in the divorce petition, but there can still be specific reasons for wanting the divorce.

Alimony & custody in no-fault divorces

In a no-fault divorce, you simply state that you don’t have a specific reason to file for divorce, which doesn’t directly affect alimony, spousal support, child custody, or child support. In other words, you don’t lose support or custody rights just because you don’t list grounds for divorce.

If you do have grounds for divorce, it could affect support and custody decisions. For example, if you want to file for divorce due to cruel treatment and abuse, then the court could be hesitant to assign any child custody rights to your spouse until the matter is investigated. Be sure to speak with our attorneys to decide how to file your divorce papers, including whether it makes sense to go a no-fault route or list grounds.
