Get Assistance With Your Common Law Marriage Case

Common law marriage, long considered a relic of the past, is still alive and well throughout the state of Texas, and allows many couples the opportunity to enter into marriage without the pomp and circumstance of a regular marriage ceremony. However, a common law divorce does not follow common law marriage, and instead couples will have to seek legal counsel to effectuate a divorce after the dissolution of a common law marriage.

We are so confident in our ability to help you get the assistance you deserve that we don’t get paid unless you do.

We know that a lack of resources has left a lot of people without access to the civil justice system. That is why we work on a contingency basis, meaning we cover all the upfront costs associated with your claim (court costs, expert costs, filing fees, etc.) so you don’t have to pay out of pocket.


We don’t take a penny until you’ve won your case.

Texas is one such state that carries on the tradition of common law marriage, as long as three factors as proof of the marriage are met. These factors include:

  1. Both spouses agree to be married
  2. The spouses live together
  3. The spouses represent to others that they were married.

A divorce is necessary to end a common law marriage if the two spouses want protection under the law related to their assets (including the protection of community property), as well as any child support or child custody agreements. However, the couple may avoid the expense of divorce if a proceeding to establish the common law marriage is not brought within two years after the couple separates and stops living together. However, although the couple may deny a common law marriage from existing, proof may be shown that indicates the couple was living together and holding themselves out to be husband and wife.

Most cases of common law divorce occur when one spouse wishes to be entitled to a fraction of the marital estate or other benefits which marriage affords both parties. An individual may also unintentionally enter into a second marriage if they did not fully end a prior common law marriage, leading to potential criminal charges. It is important to consider all the facts of a common law marriage prior to entering into a marriage or ending the marriage.
