Paternity Law in Texas 

Establishing paternity is the legal process of determining a child’s biological father. In Texas, a person can establish paternity through marriage, voluntary acknowledgment of paternity (AOP), or a court order. This process can be important for ensuring a child has ample support, allowing a parent to have a relationship with their child, and more. 

What to Know About Divorce in Texas 

In Texas, there are many factors to consider when it comes to filing for divorce. This can range from the eligibility criteria to how judges divide assets and determine custody arrangements. 

Below we have provided information about these factors and more: 

Residency Requirements for Divorce

To be eligible to file for divorce in Texas:

  • One spouse must have lived in Texas for 6 months
  • The same spouse must have lived in the filing county for 90 days

Contested and Uncontested Divorce

Spouses can seek a contested or uncontested divorce in Texas. The definitions of both are straightforward. In a contested divorce, spouses do not agree on how to split property, allot child custody, and other terms. On the other hand, spouses can seek an uncontested divorce when they agree on the terms of the divorce. It follows that an uncontested divorce is generally simpler, faster, and cheaper than a contested divorce. 

Community Property Division 

Texas is what is called a “community property” state. This means that in the eyes of the law, all property a couple has accumulated while married belongs to both spouses equally. This affects the way a judge will apportion assets and debts in a divorce. In general, property that a spouse acquires before marriage or as a gift or inheritance during a marriage is not community property. 

Custodial Rights and Divorce

Texas law seeks to allot custodial rights to both parents through a joint managing conservatorship (JMC). This does not mean a court will split custodial rights 50/50 in a divorce. Instead, a judge will grant one parent the right to establish a child’s primary residence. Then, spouses will participate in mediation to determine custody and visitation agreements. If mediation fails, then a judge will determine the JMC based on a variety of factors.
