Can I File for Divorce in Texas?

What Are the Residency Requirements to File for Divorce in Texas?
The state of Texas has unique residency requirements for people who wish to terminate their marriage. You must meet these state-specific requirements prior to filing with the District Court of your county in Texas. The Texas divorce residency requirements are as follows:

A suit for divorce may not be maintained in this state unless at the time the suit is filed either the petitioner or the respondent has been: (1) a domiciliary of this state for the preceding six-month period; and (2) a resident of the county in which the suit is filed for the preceding 90-day period. If one spouse has been a domiciliary of this state for at least the last six months, a spouse domiciled in another state or nation may file a suit for divorce in the county in which the domiciliary spouse resides at the time the petition is filed.<

A person not previously a resident of this state who is serving in the armed forces of the United States and has been stationed at one or more military installations in this state for at least the last six months and at a military installation in a county of this state for at least the last 90 days is considered to be a Texas domiciliary and a resident of that county for those periods for the purpose of filing suit for dissolution of a marriage.

The divorce is typically filed with in county in which the filing spouse resides.

(Texas Code - Family Code - Chapters: 6.301)

According to Texas divorce laws and requirements, if you DO NOT meet at least one of the above Texas residency requirements, you have the following options:

How Do I Prove Residency in Texas?
By law and under pain of perjury, the divorce paperwork requires a signed authentication by the petitioner that he or she resided in Texas for at least the past six months and 90 days in the county of filing. If the court requires proof for some reason, typically a Texas driver's license or state identification is sufficient. An affidavit of a corroborating witness testifying about Texas residency also works.

If the court requires further proof of your residency, be prepared to show utility bills or a lease or rental agreement, any mail addressed to you with a current postmark showing you receive mail at your Texas address.
