Marital Torts and Divorce in Texas?

Most people are familiar with the typical issues involved in a divorce proceeding. These common matters include division of marital property and orders relating to child custody, visitation, and support. However, in more complex divorce suits, one or both spouses may have engaged in conduct that amounts to a serious and damaging breach of the other spouse’s personal rights. A ‘tort’ can be simply defined as an act by one person that causes injury to another, and for which the law allows the injured party to seek monetary damages for the injury.
