If the Court finds that there has been infidelity during the marriage, even after the divorce has been filed, the Court can award a disproportionate division of the community estate in favor of the person whose spouse committed adultery.

In fact, in Texas where I practice, the parties can still be divorced on no-fault grounds even if one party committed adultery during the time the parties lived together as husband and wife, so long as both parties agree to proceed with the no-fault option.

Many times, where adultery was present, couples decide they do not want allegations of adultery in a public record, or they do not want to escalate an already tense situation, so they agree to divorce on no-fault grounds.

One common question a divorce attorney is often asked is whether it is okay for a divorcing couple to date other people during divorce proceedings.

While technically there is nothing wrong with that if both parties agree to it, it is important to understand that doing so can have a negative effect on the divorce.

“No fault” means that you may request the Texas Court to grant you a divorce for the simple reason that you want a divorce.
