Divorce can affect your business

People put a lot of energy and time into creating their businesses and it often takes years before they start earning a profit.

On what grounds can I get a divorce in Texas?

Texas, along with many other states across the country, allows both no-fault and at-fault divorces. An at-fault divorce is one in which one spouse can point to the other's conduct and claim this is the reason for the marriage coming to an end. However, before asking for a divorce based on fault, the alleging party must be able to prove that they should be given a divorce based on the reason they are alleging.
