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 Nevada are as follows:

  • Divorce from the bonds of matrimony may be obtained by verified complaint to the district court of any county:
    • In which the cause therefor accrued
    • In which the defendant resides or may be found
    • In which the plaintiff resides
    • In which the parties last cohabited; or
    • If plaintiff resided 6 weeks in the State before suit was brought
  • Unless the cause of action accrued within the county while the plaintiff and defendant were actually domiciled therein, no court has jurisdiction to grant a divorce unless either the plaintiff or defendant has been resident of the State for a period of not less than 6 weeks preceding the commencement of the action

  • (Nevada Statutes - Chapter 125 - Sections: 020)

    • Incompatibility
