.

Yes, you can get divorced in any state in the US as long as you have established legal residency in that state. In order to do that in TX, you have to have lived there for at least 6 months prior to filing for divorce and 90 days in the county where you are filing..

.

So if you meet those residency requirements, you can file in TX.

thanks
