The Texas Family Code provides a long list of valid legal reasons for divorce which include “fault in the break up of the marriage” (which includes infidelity, domestic violence), but most divorces today are “no fault” divorces.  This simply means you just couldn’t get along any more.  Generally a party will allege in his or her petition that the marriage has become “insupportable due to discord or conflict that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and that there is no reasonable expectation of reconciliation”.

In Texas, the Parties must wait sixty days from the date the divorce is filed until the divorce may be finalized.  This is almost an absolute rule.

If there are children born or adopted during the marriage, the divorce must be combined with a suit affecting the parent child relationship.  Technically in a divorce involving children there are two lawsuits that are filed and tried simultaneously.
