Filing for No-Fault and At-Fault Divorces

Texas is considered a no-fault divorce state, which means that you do not have to have any specific reasons for the ending of your marriage. All you need to do is ask the court for a divorce, and one will be granted to you, however there are time requirements. You can file that your marriage is ending due to fault and ask for an at-fault divorce, however, you must be specific. This can help you gain an edge when you want a larger portion of the assets. A fault divorce is typically filed when adultery or abuse occurs.

Division of Assets in a Divorce

Most of the courts in Texas will divide up the community estate in a manner that is considered a just and right equitable division. The community estate involves both real and personal property, both tangible and intangible, accrued during the marriage such as cars, retirement, and other assets. Typically, all assets are divided in a fair manner between couples, but this is not always the case. It is possible for courts to divide the assets in a way they see fit based on the facts of the case. Before the division is complete appraisals of real property, tracing of separate property and valuation of business and other assets may be necessary.

We can help you understand the different distributions and help you file the proper paperwork.

“Long story short. I have stage 4 cancer and have been embroiled in lengthy custody battles with my ex-husband. I have had several different attorneys in the Tarrant Co. Area. I am now going through a divorce with my second husband in Comal Co., and Stacy Goodbread is my highly recommended attorney. I can honestly say that she is the best attorney I’ve ever worked with. She is compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, doesn’t waste your time, she is responsive and does the best possible work on your behalf. You couldn’t ask for better representation. In simple terms, she is amazing!”Tammy
