There are grounds in Texas, including insupportability for a divorce. Our Law Firm is familiar with those grounds, and here is some research on the law on some of the grounds.

Under Const. art. 5, § 8, relating to divorce, legislature is given complete authority over matter of providing for divorce actions and necessarily has full authority not only to prescribe all "grounds" for securing a divorce, but may also prescribe any "qualifications" which it declares a petitioner must have before seeking relief in the state courts. Pappas v. Pappas (Civ.App. 1941) 146 S.W.2d 1115.

State Legislature has broad power to regulate and thereby change conditions for obtaining a divorce by its residents. Hopkins v. Hopkins (Civ.App. 1976) 540 S.W.2d 783.

This section does not violate due process. Saltarelli v. Saltarelli (App. 2 Dist. 1984) 670 S.W.2d 785.

"No-fault" divorce statute did not violate Establishment Clause or Free Exercise Clause, despite claim that terms "reconciliation" and "legitimate ends of marriage" were objectively religious; trial court was not asked to make a religious determination, but rather to determine whether continuance of marriage relation had been rendered intolerable to the other party, and was productive of no possible benefit to society. Waite v. Waite (App. 14 Dist. 2001) 64 S.W.3d 217, review denied, stay denied, rehearing of petition for review denied.

"No-fault" divorce statute did not violate state "right of conscience" constitutional guarantee, despite claim that terms "reconciliation" and "legitimate ends of marriage" were objectively religious. Id.

"No-fault" divorce statute did not violate "free institutions" clause of State Constitution; marriage was not one of the institutions contemplated by the clause, rather, language "free institutions" referred to institutions of state government necessary to ensure right of local self-government. Id.

"No-fault" divorce statute did not violate "open courts" provision of State Constitution by abolishing defense of recrimination; provision did not apply to suits for divorce, which were not common law causes of action, but were statutorily created and regulated proceedings. Id.

Term "suit for divorce", relates to particular class of suits for causes arising after marriage. McDade v. McDade (Civ.App. 1929) 16 S.W.2d 304.

Statutory grounds for divorce should be strictly construed. Buckner v. Buckner (Civ.App. 1930) 27 S.W.2d 311.

Divorce statutes should be strictly construed. Woody v. Woody (Civ.App. 1963) 371 S.W.2d 576.
Wife's argument that application of no-fault divorce law had deprived her, without due process, of vested personal property rights in marital estates, namely, the medical benefits to which she was entitled to as the wife of a retired air force officer was without basis, since record did not reflect that wife had not been afforded adequate notice or a fair hearing. Hopkins v. Hopkins (Civ.App. 1976) 540 S.W.2d 783.

There is no distinction as to right of state to regulate marriage and divorce between marriages performed in church by minister and those performed outside church by a judge, and thus this section was constitutionally applied to Christian marriage performed in church by a minister based on husband's testimony and court's finding that marriage had become insupportable because of discord and conflict of personalities and that there was no reasonable expectation of any reconciliation. Trickey v. Trickey (App. 2 Dist. 1982) 642 S.W.2d 47, dismissed.

It was intent of legislature to make decree of divorce mandatory when party to marriage alleges insupportability and establishes statutory elements, regardless of who is at fault, and as such, when dissolution of marriage is sought solely on ground of insupportability, evidence of fault becomes irrelevant as analytical construct and may not be considered by trial court in its just and right division of community estate. Phillips v. Phillips (App. 9 Dist. 2002) 75 S.W.3d 564.

Purpose of legislature in enacting this section was to abolish necessity of presenting sordid and ugly details of conduct on the part of either spouse in order to obtain a decree of divorce. Baxla v. Baxla (Civ.App. 1975) 522 S.W.2d 736.

It is not error for a Texas court rendering a decree of divorce to apply the no-fault divorce law of Texas although the marriage dissolved was celebrated in a sister state and the law of the sister state at time of marriage did not provide for no-fault divorce. Hopkins v. Hopkins (Civ.App. 1976) 540 S.W.2d 783.

In divorce suit, court did not err in applying new no fault divorce law (this section), despite contention that law in effect at time of marriage in sister state should be applied in determining right to divorce. Smitheal v. Smitheal (Civ.App. 1975) 518 S.W.2d 842, dismissed w.o.j., certiorari denied 96 S.Ct. 277, 423 U.S. 928, 46 L.Ed.2d 256.

In divorce suit, even if the court applied wrong law in determining whether husband was entitled to divorce, prejudicial error was not shown, where wife also asked to be divorced and urged grounds which were grounds for divorce under old law, court granted wife divorce and also granted husband a "no fault" divorce which also terminated marriage. Id.

Decree of divorce is absolute in Texas from its entry, unless set aside or appealed from, so that a provision in decree in Oklahoma, where it is not shown that the law of that state is to the contrary, that the decree shall not be absolute until six months after entry is of no effect in Texas. Vickers v. Faubion (Civ.App. 1920) 224 S.W. 803.

For years, courts have had a lot of discretion, when it comes to the "best interest" of the child in family cases for custody determination in Texas. Litigants have to be prepare to explain to the court why it would be in the best interest of the child, to be with one parent over the other one. In most cases, it is not an easy task to do, since both parents are involved with the care of the child.

A Supreme Court of Texas case gave us some guidelines, as to what the courts may look at. In this case, the court looked at these factors: (A) the desires of the child; (B) the emotional and physical needs of the child now and in the future; (C) the emotional and physical danger to the child now and in the future; (D) the parental abilities of the individuals seeking custody; (E) the programs available to assist these individuals to promote the best interest of the child; (F) the plans for the child by these individuals or by the agency seeking custody; (G) the stability of the home or proposed placement; (H) the acts or omissions of the parent which may indicate that the existing parent-child relationship is not a proper one; and (I) any excuse for the acts or omissions of the parent. Holley v. Adams, 544 S.W.2d 367, 372 (Tex. 1976).

The court also said that: "This listing is by no means exhaustive, but does indicate a number of considerations which either have been or would appear to be pertinent." We take this list, and make it pertinent to our client's cases.

If you, or someone you know is facing a divorce, custody battle, child support issues, family issues, give us a call (210) 979-9777. Our San Antonio Lawyers have been helping families with their family legal issues successfully.

This Motion to Reconsider Respondent’s Plea to the Jurisdiction is brought by PARTY, Respondent, who shows in support:

1. On DATE, this Court heard Respondent’s Plea to the Jurisdiction which was entered and signed on DATE.

(A) This Court Ruled that Respondent’s Plea to the Jurisdiction was denied but it further ordered that when certified copies of pleadings from the Mexican Tribunal

        (1) a court of this State determines that neither the child, the child’s parents,(emphasis added) and any person acting as a parent do not have a significant connection with this State and that substantial evidence is no longer available in this State concerning the child’s care, protection, training, and personal relationship; or

         (2) a court of this State or a court of another state determines that the child, the child’s parents, (emphasis added) and any person acting as a parent do not presently reside in this State."

2. The child, the subject of the suit resides in Texas and has resided in Texas for the past four years. Respondent (one of the parents of the child) resides in Texas, and has never resided in Illinois. Substantial evidence is no longer available in this State concerning the child’s care, protection, training, and personal relationship. The State that has substantial evidence concerning the child’s care, protection, training and relationship is Texas, not Illinois. The child goes to school in Texas. The child’s friends are in Texas. The child’s family is in Texas. The child’s child support is monitored by Texas.

3. Respondent is not amendable to process in this State pursuant 735 ILCS 5/2-213 (b).

Moreover, Respondent has not submitted himself to this States jurisdiction pursuant 735 ILCS 5/2-209, since none of the grounds to exercise jurisdiction over him are present.

Respondent prays that: (1) the Clerk set this matter for hearing, (2) the Court dismiss this case without prejudice as provided for by 750 ILCS 22/204(b), 735 ILCS 5/2-209, 750 ILC 36/101 ,and 735 ILCS 5/2-213 (b).

Divorce is never easy, and we understand it!
