How long do I need to live in Texas before I can file for divorce?

You need to have lived within Texas for a minimum of six (6) months for Texas to gain jurisdiction for a divorce. You will need to be able to show proof of such residency, such as a utility bill or a apartment lease with a signing date to give evidence if required to do so by the court.
