Deciding to divorce your spouse is rarely easy. A divorce when a spouse lives outside of Texas, however, can be a bit more difficult. 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
- Serving in the United States military, either out of State or abroad.
Oftentimes divorcing couples will choose to proceed with their divorce only when both parties are finally present in the State of Texas.
While this approach may seem easier, your spouse’s presence in Texas may not be required for a TX divorce. For couples who do not wish to wait, a Texas divorce can still continue to full conclusion regarding such issues as:

- The state that the service person is currently stationed
- The state that the spouse currently resides
- The state that the serviceperson claims residence
