In Texas, a divorce, or suit for dissolution of marriage, is the legal process of terminating a marriage along with the rights and responsibilities of the marriage relationship. A divorce changes the legal marital status of the parties.
Texas is a “no fault” divorce state, which means that a party can dissolve the marriage without having to show that one party caused the break-up of the relationship. If applicable, a party can also ask the court to make a judgment as to the party that caused the break-up of the marriage, which could have an affect of the division of the marital assets.
If children were born during the marriage, a suit affecting the parent-child relationship will become part of the divorce suit. This part of the suit will contain provisions relating to possession and access to the children and payment of child support.
