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 North Dakota are as follows:

  • The plaintiff, in good faith, must have been a resident of the state for six months immediately preceding commencement of the action
  • If the plaintiff has not been a resident of this state for the six months preceding commencement of the action, a divorce may be granted if the plaintiff, in good faith, has been a resident of this state for the six months immediately preceding entry of the decree of divorce
