In Texas, a no-fault divorce is a divorce that is granted without either spouse having to prove that the other spouse did something wrong. In other words, neither spouse needs to prove that the other spouse committed any act of misconduct that caused the breakdown of the marriage.
Instead, a no-fault divorce in Texas is based on the ground of “insupportability,” which means that the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict that destroys the legitimate ends of the marital relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.
To obtain a no-fault divorce in Texas based on insupportability, the spouse seeking the divorce must simply show that the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict. The court will grant the divorce without requiring either spouse to prove any specific fault or wrongdoing.
A no-fault divorce can be a simpler and less stressful way to end a marriage, especially if both spouses agree to the divorce and are willing to work together to resolve any related issues, such as property division, child custody, and support. However, if there are disputes between the spouses, a no-fault divorce can still be complex and contentious, and it may be necessary to work with a divorce attorney to protect your rights and interests.
