Do you have to get divorced in same county you got married in ,in Texas?

I've been divorced for about 7yrs now and i heard a rumor that it might not be valid because we got divorced in different counties. Is this true? It could all just be a rumor but thought I'd ask. Better be safe than sorry. Although it might be a little to late.

    Assuming your divorce was done through an attorney, you have nothing to worry about. I filed my own Texas divorce and did not use an attorney. We were married in Tyler County and divorced in Harris County. Filing your own divorce is not recommended for people with children or real property. The law was you had to be 6 mos. in the state and 3 mos. in the county. I qualified on all accounts. 7 yrs? Honey, you're divorced! By the way, in Texas you cannot remarry for 90 days from the date your divorce is granted. Guess that's not a problem, huh?

    You generally have to get divorced in the county you live in if you are the one seeking the divorce. If you didn't live in the county where you filed they would not have heard the case. It is just a rumor started by someone who didn't understand something they heard,

    You would file for a divorce in the county in which you live. Where you married has nothing to do with the divorce.

    No, you get divorced in the county that you live in as long as you meet living requirements (such as a certain amount of time of living in that county before the divorce).

    No, you only have to reside in the county you file in.

    no, but I think you have to reside in that county for so many months. You will have to do the research.
