Many people claim that they’re knowledgeable about family law. The fact is that family law varies widely from state to state, which means that one state handles the divorce process differently from another state. Therefore, one person’s familiarity with a certain divorce law may only be applicable to another state and not be applicable in the state of Texas.
In order to begin the divorce process, one party, known as the petitioner, will be required to file an Original Petition for Divorce in the appropriate county. Requirements state that you must be a resident of our state for at least 6 months and have lived in the county where you will be filing for at least 90 days before submitting the paperwork.
