Residency Requirements

  • One of the parties has been a domiciliary of this state for not less than 180 days immediately preceding commencement of the proceeding

  • (Minnesota Statutes - Chapters: 518.07, 518.09)

There are also grounds each state will allow you to file under when filing for a divorce. The ground for divorce is the reason that you and your spouse are filing for a divorce. The following are the grounds for divorce in Minnesota:

  • An irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship
    • Achieved by living separate and apart for at least 180 days or serious marital discord adversely affecting the attitude of the husband, wife, or both towards the marriage
