In the state of Texas, there are two basic grounds for divorce: Fault basis and no fault basis.
No-fault divorces are also allowed in the state of Texas: i.e. a conflict of personalities. This means that neither party is named as being at fault for the divorce. Rather, these divorces are the result of a discord or conflict of personalities without any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.
Annulment is another way to end a marriage, but it is rare and not easy to obtain. In an annulment, the marriage is not just dissolved, it is considered in the eyes of the law as if it never happened.
A marriage can be declared void if either party has an existing marriage to another person, not dissolved by death, divorce, or annulment (i.e. Bigamy).
There are time limits attached to annulment in most cases, so it is important to move quickly. Contact Phillip Herr if you have questions about divorce or annulment in the state of Texas. Our Flower Mound divorce lawyer is honest, trustworthy, and here for you.
