Texas Divorce Frequently Asked Questions
Divorce is a complicated and emotional process that involves several factors, from alimony to property division. Depending on your circumstances, your case may require a different approach, and you likely have questions about what you may face during the divorce process.
What are the grounds for divorce in Texas?
Texas is a no-fault state, which means that the only reason necessary for divorce is insupportability. The court does not require evidence or explanation of your reasons for divorce, only that you and your spouse cannot continue the marriage.
How long do I have to wait to file for divorce?
According to state law, one or both spouses need to live in-state for at least six months and in the county where you plan to file for at least 90 days.
Is property divided equally?
Property falls into one of two categories: communal or separate. Communal property is anything bought or owned jointly during the marriage. A house you purchased with a joint bank account is communal property. Separate property, however, is what you own before marriage, or assets purchased with individual funds. If you inherit a piece of land from a relative, it is separate property if it was willed exclusively to you.
Will my business go through equitable division?
Business assets are subject to equitable division during divorce. A business founded prior to the marriage is also subject to division if you earned profits during the relationship. These assets are then divided further into tangible and intangible property. Tangible property is usually straightforward and refers to the building, tools, or other physical belongings necessary to perform a service. Intangible assets are more difficult to define as they refer to the business owner's reputation or intellectual property. Always consult a qualified attorney before you attempt to navigate the property division process.
Is high net worth divorce different?
Every divorce case is unique, but high net worth cases, in particular, have their own challenges. In these cases, assets have incredibly high value, and some properties may be international. These cases usually require the court's help to ensure that property is divided fairly, as well as appraisers to determine the value of assets. The Law Office of Brett H. Pritchard has experience with high net worth divorces, and we can help you through the court process.
What are the challenges in a military divorce?
Just as high net worth divorces have challenges, so do military divorce cases. In addition to following state law, these cases involve military regulations as well. Spouses on active duty have protection from court proceedings and civil actions according to the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), and any effort to dissolve the marriage will be stalled for 90 days or until their return. Military benefits and pensions are subject to division during divorce proceedings. This is often one of the most complicated parts of military divorces.
Do children live with both parents?
Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed result for child custody. The judge makes their decision based on the child's best interests. To do so, they evaluate both parents' financial and behavioral wellness to determine whether they can provide a stable home environment for the child without the benefit of communal property and shared responsibilities.
