Texas Out-Of-State, International Divorce & Military Divorce

Deciding to divorce your spouse is rarely easy. However, a divorce when a spouse lives outside of Texas can be a bit more complicated. If you are a Texas resident, but your spouse lives elsewhere, you may be able to obtain a divorce in Texas, even if your spouse is:

  • Residing outside of Texas in the continental United States,
  • Living abroad (internationally), or
  • She served in the United States military, either out of State or abroad.

Often divorcing couples will choose to proceed with their divorce only when both parties are finally present in the State of Texas.
