What are the Residency and Filing Requirements for Divorce in Nevada?

To file for divorce in Nevada, either spouse must be a resident of the state for at least six weeks. The spouse that files for divorce must also provide a witness who lives in Nevada and can testify that he or she knows that either spouse has lived in Nevada for at least six weeks, according to Nevada Revised Statutes 125.020.

The spouse requesting a divorce may file their petition in any Nevada county where the cause for divorce occurred, where the non-filing spouse resides or may be found, where the filing spouse resides, or where the spouses last lived together.
