FAQs About Divorce in Texas 

How Long Do I Have to Live in Texas to Obtain a Divorce in Texas? 

To file for a divorce in the state of Texas, one of the spouses must have been a resident in the state for a continuous 6-month period and must have been a resident in the county where the divorce is filed for at least 90 days, per Texas Family Code § 6.301

Does Texas Have a Waiting Period Before Divorce? 

Texas family courts can’t grant a divorce until at least 60 days have passed since the divorce petition was filed, per Texas Family Code § 6.702, unless a) the responding spouse has been convicted or is legally accused of having been violent towards the petitioner or a member of the family household, or b) the petitioner has an active protective order against the responding spouse due to domestic violence. 

Do I Need to Have Grounds for My Divorce? 

Texas is a “no-fault” divorce state, meaning you do not have to prove any reason for dissolving your marriage. However, if you choose to file for a fault-based divorce in your petition, the court will take it into consideration in determining the fair division of the couple’s property. Examples of fault-based divorces in Texas include adultery, cruel treatment, abandonment, conviction of a felony or long-term imprisonment, or confinement in a mental hospital for at least 3 years. See Texas Family Code §§ 6.001-6.008 for further information. 

How Do I Get Permanent Alimony? 

Spouses can request spousal maintenance (alimony) if they lack sufficient property to provide for their minimum reasonable needs or if the marriage lasted 10+ years and the requesting spouse lacks sufficient property to provide for their minimal needs and lacks earning ability to provide for themselves. There are other stipulations for gaining spousal maintenance, as per Texas Family Code § 8.051
