Texas Is a No-Fault Divorce State
A husband or wife in Texas can obtain a divorce without having to prove that one party caused the breakup of the marriage. However, a divorce can also be granted declaring one party at fault in the breakup of the marriage. Grounds for fault include adultery, cruel treatment and abandonment. A finding of fault can have a disproportionate effect
The "Cooling Off Period"
Even if both parties are on board with wanting a divorce, it cannot happen overnight. In Texas, parties must wait at least 60 days between the filing of their divorce suit and finalizing the divorce. However, if one party has been convicted of a criminal offense constituting domestic violence or where an active protective order remains ending, this cooling off period can be waived.
