Can You File for Divorce: Residency

There is a residency requirement before you can file for divorce in The Woodlands. The Texas code requires that either spouse meet both of the following requirements:

  1. a domiciliary of Texas 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.

These criteria must be satisfied at the time the petition for divorce is filed. If you file one day too early, your petition does not meet the statutory requirements for divorce in The Woodlands.
