WHAT ARE GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE IN TEXAS?

DivorceTechnically, a party in a marriage doesn’t need to have grounds for divorce in order to get divorced because Texas recognizes “No-Fault” divorce.

That simply means that the marriage has become “insupportable because of discord or conflict.” However, if one party or the other wishes to state grounds for filing, Texas recognizes these grounds for divorce and may grant a divorce in favor of one spouse if the other spouse is guilty of one or more of the following: cruelty, adultery, conviction of felony, abandonment, living apart, or confinement in a mental hospital.
