Texas Law Firm Helping People with Divorce and Related Matters

Divorce is legally defined as the dissolution or termination of a marriage. Usually, the divorce process begins when one or both spouses decide that they would like to end the marriage. There are numerous reasons why this may happen, such as infidelity, abandonment, abuse or even personality differences as spouses may grow apart over time. Regardless of the reasons for the divorce, spouses will have to meet certain legal criteria before they can successfully obtain a divorce in the state of Texas.

Legitimate Grounds for Divorce

Texas is both a “fault” and “no fault” divorce state, which means that spouses can file for divorce without meeting certain legal grounds or may cite certain legal grounds for divorce. In Texas, the following are considered legitimate grounds for divorce: cruelty, adultery, long-term imprisonment (over 1 year sentence), abandonment (over 1 year), living apart (at least 3 years) and confinement in a mental institution (at least 3 years). After a spouse feels that he/she has sufficient grounds for divorce or feels that his/her divorce is “no fault”, he/she may file a Petition for Divorce with the District court in his/her county of residence.

Texas Divorce Residency Requirements

Before any spouse can file for a divorce, he/she or his/her spouse must meet the state’s residency requirements. In Texas, one of the spouses must be a resident of the state for at least 6 months and one of the spouses must be a resident of the county where they are filing for divorce for at least 90 days.

Recent Testimonials


    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”

    “My name is Cynthia, and my family recently hired the Gould Law firm to assist us on serious allegation. Mr. Gould & his assistant, Ozzie Ahumada, have been extremely helpful. Ozzie gave us his personal cell phone and he has been there every step of the way helping get my family member out of jail. I would highly recommend the Mr. Gould and his staff for all your legal needs!!!”

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”



    “Well, I can certainly say that I am 100% satisfied with the services I received from Gould Law Firm! From my first visit down to my very last, the office staff and the attorney was friendly and very personable while remaining professional & ethical. They answered all my question and never once led me down the wrong path, he & his office were always very accommodating and welcoming to any & all my questions. I would definitely recommend them - - my case was a civil case (employment contract). They are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you so much!”
