Divorce Basics in Texas

How do I start the divorce process?

  • To start a divorce, you must file a formal petition called the “Original Petition for Divorce.” The initial petition must include information about the parties and any requests for relief from the court, along with the basis for this request. If anything in the petition is inaccurate or you left something out, you will need to make the correction and re-serve the other party.

Where do I file my divorce petition?

  • Your divorce must be filed in a court that has jurisdiction over all the parties, which is typically the County where the couple lives. If you and your spouse are living in different counties, consult an attorney to determine which attorney you should file a case. If there are children involved, you must file in the county where your children live.

What are the requirements for filing a divorce in Texas?

  • To file a divorce in Texas, you must be a resident of Texas for the past 6 months and a resident of the county where you want to file your case.
