At Cañas & Flores, you can work with a legal team of Fort Worth divorce attorneys who have decades of collective experience in helping clients reach mutually acceptable divorce settlements or resolutions through family courts.
What Is a “No-Fault” Divorce?
Texas has established no-fault divorce, which can facilitate the divorce process since establishing fault through evidence is not a requirement. A no-fault divorce is merely based on the fact that your marriage has broken down to the point where there is no hope of a reconciliation.
Texas still maintains fault grounds which can be used in the divorce process. Proving fault can have a bearing on such issues as the division of marital property, child custody, and spousal support.
Fault grounds include:
- Conviction of a felony
- Confinement in a mental institution
- Having lived separate and apart for at least three years
In order to finalize your divorce, certain issues will need to be resolved, such as marital property and debt division, child custody and visitation, child support, and spousal support. Under Texas Family Code, a just and right division of community property is required which may or may not translate into a 50/50 split. Each case is unique and will need to be resolved based on the facts and circumstances of the case.
At Cañas & Flores, we are here to provide the personalized legal representation and support you need at every stage of the divorce process. Our Fort Worth divorce lawyers and staff are fully bilingual and can assists both English- and Spanish-speaking clients.
