Legal Question in Family Law in Texas
I need to know what is needed to show proof of county residency in Bexar County, Texas. I contacted the District Clerk's office; however, I was told that that question constitutes legal advice which seems odd.

The clerks are trained that they absolutely cannot provide any information that constitutes or could constitute legal advice. They take a very conservative view on what information they can provide. A question of how to prove anything in court requires legal advice on what evidence will meet your evidentiary burden and how to make that evidence conform to the rules of procedure for presenting evidence to the court.
Normally proof of residency will be established with an affidavit and if contested, the affidavit can be supported by a number of other documents. However, you did not explain why you need to show proof of residence so an affidavit may not be the correct evidence for your needs.
Tyr copies of utility bills, a voter registration card, an apartment lease.
