There are two types of grounds for divorce in Texas: fault-based and no-fault.
Fault-based grounds for divorce
• Confinement in a mental hospital for at least three years
• Conviction of a felony
No-fault grounds for divorce
• Insupportability – This is the most common ground for divorce in Texas. It means that the marriage has broken down irretrievably and there is no reasonable possibility of reconciliation.
• Living apart for at least three years
1. Contact an attorney: A family law attorney can help you understand your options for enforcing the court order and can represent you in court proceedings.
2. File a motion for enforcement: You can file a motion for enforcement with the court that issued the order. This motion asks the court to enforce the terms of the order and may result in penalties for the non-complying party.
3. Seek contempt of court: If the other party is willfully violating the court order, you may be able to seek a finding of contempt of court. This can result in fines, jail time, or other penalties for the non-complying party.
4. Seek a modification of the order: If the non-compliance is due to a change in circumstances, or if the other party continues to violate the court order, you may need to seek a modification of the court order rather than enforcement.
It’s important to keep records of all communications, payments, and other relevant information related to the court order. This can help you prove your case in court and increase your chances of a successful enforcement action.
Yes, it is possible to modify an existing child custody or support agreement in Texas if there has been a material and substantial change in circumstances since the order was entered.
To modify child custody, you must show that the current custody arrangement is not in the best interest of the child and that a modification is necessary. The change in circumstances could be something like a change in the child’s needs, a parent’s relocation, or a significant change in a parent’s circumstances.
To modify child support, you must show a material and substantial change in circumstances since the last order was entered. This could be a change in income, medical expenses, or the needs of the child.
To modify either child custody or child support, you will need to file a petition to modify with the court that issued the original order.
It is important to note that you cannot modify a child support order retroactively, meaning you cannot modify support for a period that has already passed. However, if you can show a material and substantial change in circumstances, the court can modify the order going forward.
In Texas, property division in a divorce is based on community property laws, which means that all property acquired during the marriage is generally considered community property and is subject to division between the spouses in a divorce. However, separate property, which is property that was owned by one spouse before the marriage or acquired by gift or inheritance during the marriage, is not subject to division.
Here are some guidelines for property division in a divorce in Texas:
1. Identify and classify the property: All property must be identified, classified as community or separate, and valued. This includes real estate, personal property, bank accounts, retirement accounts, stocks, and any other assets.
2. Determine the value of the property: The court will consider the fair market value of the property at the time of the divorce.
3. Consider any factors that may affect the property’s value: For example, if the property is a business or a piece of real estate that is difficult to sell, the court may adjust the value accordingly.
4. Divide the property: The court will divide the community property in a way that is “just and right,” which means that the division should be fair and equitable, but not necessarily equal. The court will consider factors such as each spouse’s earning capacity, health, education, and the size and nature of the estate.
It’s important to note that debts and liabilities acquired during the marriage are also subject to division in a divorce.
