Have you found yourself wanting to end your marriage? Learn the reasons to file for Divorce in Texas...

The state of Texas is a no-fault divorce state. In no-fault divorce, you do not have to prove that your spouse did anything wrong. For example, a no-fault divorce would apply if you want to end your relationship because you can’t get along with each other. However, if one party is at "fault" for the breakup of the marriage, the court may take that into consideration when determining how the property and assets will be divided.

There are many reasons you may use to file for divorce in Texas. They are defined as follows:

Insupportability (which is the no-fault reason) is defined as discord or conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation. This is the most common reason for divorce.

Cruelty means that one spouse has treated the other in a cruel or abusive manner, either physically or mentally.

Adultery may apply for individuals who believe their spouses have been unfaithful. Incriminating evidence could include text messages, emails or letters showing that a spouse has been unfaithful.

Abandonment is grounds for divorce if a spouse has been gone for at least one year and had the intent to abandon the other.

Living apart for more than three years can be a basis for divorce in Texas.

Confined in a mental facility can be cited in a fault divorce if a spouse has been in one of these facilities for more than three years.

Conviction of a felony refers to the situation where a spouse has been incarcerated in federal or state prison for more than a year or has not been pardoned.
