A suit for divorce may not be maintained in this state unless at the time the suit is filed either the petitioner or the respondent has been: (1) a domiciliary of this state for the preceding six-month period; and (2) a resident of the county in which the suit is filed for the preceding 90-day period.

What this means is that in order to obtain a divorce, for example, in Houston, Texas, there are certain residency requirements that must be met. Using the above scenario, in order to get a divorce in San Antonio, Texas you must show that not only are you living in Texas and have lived in Texas for at least six months prior to the filing of the divorce, but that you have also lived in the county with which you have filed for divorce (and since you’ve filed for the divorce in San Antonio, that means you have to have lived, at the very least, in Bexar County for the last three months).
