Fault Grounds in Divorce
Even though Texas is what’s considered a no fault state, in which divorcing couples can simply say that they want a divorce and have it granted without stating a party is at fault, there are instances in which a party needs to cite fault or it is beneficial to cite fault. Because Texas courts often base property division and other divorce decisions on fault if it is cited, this can play a major role in your divorce.
