Felony Convictions and Divorce
There are numerous reasons that the State of Texas will allow a fault-based divorce to be filed. One of these factors is a felony conviction or the imprisonment of one of the parties involved for a felony. Such factors are considered in fault-based divorce cases in order to evaluate the interests of the family affected by the conviction.
For more information on the proper filing and legal implications of a fault-based divorce, you should speak with an experienced attorney. The Denton divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates can provide the information and legal support you need. Contact us today at 972-420-6560 to discuss your situation with a legal professional.
Imprisonment and Felony Convictions
The separation of spouses caused by imprisonment can be seriously detrimental to the state of a marriage. The State of Texas provides the following guidelines regarding fault-based divorces and felony convictions. The court may grant a fault-based divorce if:
- A spouse is convicted of a felony
- A spouse has been imprisoned for at least one year
- A spouse has not been pardoned for his or her conviction
The imprisonment can be within The Texas Department of Criminal Justice, another state facility, or a federal facility. The jurisdiction of the imprisonment does not determine the validity of the fault.
If the imprisonment of your spouse has harmed your marriage and you are considering filing a fault-based divorce, you need the help of an experienced attorney. Contact a Denton divorce lawyer from Alexander & Associates by calling 972-420-6560 today.
