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 Oregon are as follows:

  • If the marriage took place in the state and either party is a resident of or domiciled in the state or at least one party must be a resident of or be domiciled in this state at the time the suit is commenced and continuously for a period of six months immediately prior to the time the suit is commenced
  • A petition for dissolution may be filed only in a county in which the petitioner or respondent resides

  • (Oregon Statutes - Volume 2 - Sections: 14.070, 107.065, 107.075)
