Frequently Asked Questions about Texas Family Law

Got questions about family law? Our Texas family law attorney answers some of the frequently asked questions about divorce and family law.

Do I have to prove fault to get a divorce in Texas?

Texas is a no-fault state; Thus, it is not necessary to prove fault to get divorced in Texas. Divorces in Texas can simply be granted on the grounds of insupportability, meaning that there is marital discord or conflict of personalities for which no reasonable expectation of reconciliation exists. However, fault grounds may also be pled. Adultery and cruel treatment are some examples of a fault ground for a Texas divorce.

If my divorce is not yet finalized, can I move my children to another state?

While judges typically will order a geographic restriction during a divorce, it may be allowable if a separation agreement, or temporary order, is in place. If the separation includes provisions that allow for moving the child’s residence, you may be free to do so without causing problems with your divorce case.

How much DNA evidence is required to prove paternity?

A man is reputably identified as the father of a child if the results of the testing disclose that he has at least a 99 percent probability of paternity. A man so identified may request further testing if he pays for it in advance.

Ninety-nine percent is well above the usual civil evidentiary standard of a preponderance of the evidence.

What if my spouse doesn’t want to get divorced or feels we will reconcile?

In Texas, all it takes is for one spouse to feel that there is no reasonable expectation of reconciliation. If one spouse provides testimony that a reconciliation is not reasonably expected, a court has the power to grant the divorce.

If my spouse files for divorce, can I keep my home, car, and personal property?

In Texas, spouses are typically entitled to an “equitable” share of any community and marital assets like real estate, cars, and other property obtained during the marriage. Property that was owned prior to the couple’s marriage may be exempt from divorce proceedings in certain cases, but if the property is considered to be a “shared asset,” it may be included in the divorce settlement.

Does Texas recognize same-sex marriages from other states as valid?

Generally, matrimonial proceedings conducted in other states such as divorces, child support orders, adoptions, etc are recognized in Texas due to the full faith and credit clause in the United States Constitution. These orders can be registered in the district clerk’s office and enforce or modified just as any Texas order.
