How long before we can file a divorce after moving from a different state?

If you’ve moved to Texas from a different state, you typically have to wait six straight months before you can file for divorce here in Texas. There are exceptions to that rule. If there’s a dangerous emergency, then you can seek the relief of a Texas court before that six-month deadline. But hard and fast rules, generally speaking, if you’ve moved here from out of state, you have to wait six months before you can file for divorce here.
