Residency Requirements

  • The plaintiff must be a resident of the state for six (6) full weeks immediately preceding the commencement of the action
  • The divorce may be filed in the county in which either the husband or the wife reside
  • If either spouse is not a resident of the state, the divorce must be filed in the county in which the plaintiff resides
