Which Kind of Divorce is Right for Your Situation?
Every relationship is different. You and your spouse may still be on good terms, making it possible to pursue resolution methods like mediation or arbitration—both significantly less expensive and time-consuming than courtroom litigation. If you and your spouse are unable to find agreement, Texas provides different types of divorce to accommodate each situation.
You may be able to dissolve your relationship through methods such as:
- Collaborative divorce: You, your spouse, and your respective attorneys make a good faith effort to come to agreements wherever possible. This can help couples save time, money, and the emotional headache that comes from a lengthy dispute. Anything that cannot be resolved amicably can be taken to divorce court.
- Statutory fault divorce: If your spouse committed a wrongful act, Texas provides statutes to help you obtain restitution. You can file for divorce on grounds that your spouse failed to support you, acted in a cruel way, committed adultery, committed a crime with a lengthy prison sentence, abandoned you for at least a year, moved out for at least three years, or has been confined to a mental hospital for at least three years.
- Annulment: Not every marriage is meant to be. Annulment allows spouses to split up by voiding their marriage so it is erased from public record.
What Happens Next?
Planning your divorce means making the most of shared property. Some investments would drastically lose value if split up between two people, and should be kept intact if at all possible. If you have children, you will need to make arrangements now that will protect your interests in the future. For example, if you plan to move out of state in the future, disclosing that early on is much easier than doing so later. A good divorce attorney can help with this.
