    Default Do I Need to Get Divorced

    My question involves divorce in the State of: Texas.
    I would guess that I would be considered common law married. Do I still need to file for divorced???

    Yes, you do.

    There is no such thing as common-law divorce. Once parties are married, regardless of the manner in which their marriage is contracted, they are married and can only be divorced by appropriate means in the place where the divorce is granted. That means, in all 50 states, only by a court order.
