Residency Requirements

Every state has a set of residency requirements that must be met by the filing spouse in order for the court to have jurisdiction over the divorce proceedings. If you don't meet the residency requirements of the state you're trying to file in, the case may get dismissed by the court. The residency requirements in Nebraska are as follows:

  • At least one of the parties has had actual residence in this state with a bona fide intention of making this state his or her permanent home for at least one year prior to the filing of the complaint
  • The marriage was solemnized in this state and either party has resided in this state from the time of marriage to filing the complaint
  • Persons serving in the armed forces of the United States who have been continuously stationed at any military base or installation in this state for one year or, if the marriage was solemnized in this state, have resided in this state from the time of marriage to the filing of the complaint
  • The dissolution of marriage may be filed in either county in which the spouse resides

  • (Nebraska Statutes - Chapter 42 - Sections: 342, 349)
