San Antonio Divorce Lawyers

Representation by an Award-Winning Attorney

Sometimes people who were once deeply in love grow apart. When this happens, it usually results in divorce. Divorce can be a difficult but necessary step to move forward with your life. These situations are often emotional and many people find making decisions and correctly handling all legal aspects of a divorce challenging.

Hiring a skilled and attentive San Antonio divorce attorney can be one of the deciding factors in your case. At The Law Office of Rebecca J. Carrillo, our firm offers non-judgmental, experienced guidance through all types of divorce cases in the state of Texas.

Understanding Divorce in Texas

The laws of divorce vary depending on the state the divorce takes place. Texas is both a fault and no-fault state, so there are many factors that are taken into consideration for each case. It is also a community property state, so any property that was acquired during the marriage will be divided in an equitable or "just and right" manner. State law mandates that there is a minimum 60-day waiting period before a divorce can be finalized and this timeline begins from the time the Petition for Divorce is filed.

The grounds for divorce in Texas are:

  • Adultery
  • Cruelty
  • Abandonment for at least a year
  • Living apart for a minimum of three years
  • Felony where a spouse is imprisoned for at least a year
  • Confinement in a mental hospital
  • Insupportability

Residency Requirements for Divorce in Texas

A divorce lawsuit can be filed in Texas after you or your spouse have lived in Texas for at least 6 months and a resident of the county you intend to file in for at least 90 days. If neither of you have lived in Texas for this period of time, then you have not met the jurisdiction requirements to file and you will need to wait to file for the divorce.
