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

 If a divorce is requested because one or both spouses lacked the legal capability of entering or providing consent to the marriage the a divorce may be granted as long as the marriage was solemnized in Oregon and either party is a resident of Oregon or domiciled in the state at the time the divorce action is commenced. If divorce is sought on grounds of irreconcilable differences then either spouse must be an Oregon resident before a divorce action can be filed. (Oregon Statutes, Chapter 107, Section 107.075) The divorce action should be filed in the county where either party resides (Oregon Statutes Chapter 107, Section 107.085)
