Fathers that are facing a divorce or domestic battle should be well aware of the complexities of Texas divorce law that threaten Austin dads’ rights.
An Austin father’s rights may feel violated when the divorce is of no fault of his own but rather due to the misconduct of his wife. The vast majority of divorces are “no-fault,” meaning the marriage is beyond any reasonable hope of reconciliation, but when fault is involved – which, in Texas, includes grounds of adultery, abandonment, and cruelty among others – divorcing dads need to tread carefully.
This is because Texas considers marital misconduct when dividing property and determining the amount, duration, and manner of any alimony payments that may be awarded. So, a key advantage of alleging fault is to be awarded a disproportionate share of the community estate. The spouse alleging fault has the burden of proving it is true at court so it’s crucial to seek counsel that will empower you to protect yourself against accusations.
