Texas Residency Requirements for Divorce
To file for divorce in Texas, you must first meet a residency requirement. The requirement states that:
- Either you or your spouse must be a Texas resident for the six months prior to filing for divorce
- You must have lived in the county where your divorce is being filed for at least 90 days prior to filing
After you meet this requirement, you can then proceed to file either a fault or a no-fault divorce. If you try to file without having met the residency requirement, your case may be delayed or dismissed entirely.
Compassionate & Assertive Representation
Attorneys Jeff Gilbert and Rachel Aguilar are prepared to work closely with you throughout the divorce process. We will learn about you, your concerns, and your hopes for the future. Jeff will explain your options and the recommended course of action in your case. Most often, this will involve negotiating a settlement that is fair and resolves the outstanding issues in the most positive way possible. When the situation calls for tenacious trial litigation, however, we can fight to ensure that your needs are met. Throughout the legal process, we keep you informed of important developments and provide you with compassionate support should you have a need for it.
