Divorce Process in Texas
There are a few requirements involved in the process of a Texas divorce.
Residency requirements – Texas requires that one spouse be a Texas resident for at least 6 months
and a county resident for at least 90 days before the couple can file
for divorce in the state.
Pregnancy – Most courts in Texas won’t finalize a divorce if the wife is pregnant

until the baby is born before filing for divorce.
Grounds for divorce – Texas has several grounds for divorce that a couple can use when filing,

- Separation/Living apart
- Mental incapacity
- Convicted of a felony
- Adultery that can be proven

has been convicted of domestic violence or has an active protection order
due to domestic violence previously committed.
Divorce Methods – There are three methods the divorce process can take:
