Can I File for Divorce in Maine?

What Are the Residency Requirements to File for Divorce in Maine?
The state of Maine has unique residency requirements for people who wish to file for divorce. You must meet these state-specific requirements prior to filing with the Family Court for your county. The Maine residency requirements are as follows:

A person seeking a divorce may file a complaint for divorce in the District Court if: A. The plaintiff has resided in good faith in this State for 6 months prior to the commencement of the action; B. The plaintiff is a resident of this State and the parties were married in this State; C. The plaintiff is a resident of this State and the parties resided in this State when the cause of divorce accrued; or D. The defendant is a resident of this State. The divorce may be filed in either county in which the parties reside.

The Dissolution of Marriage is typically filed with in county in which the filing spouse lives.

The right to file a complaint or bring a petition may not be denied a person for failure to meet a residency requirement if the person is a member of the Armed Forces of the United States on active duty stationed in this State or the spouse of that member or a parent of a child of that member. The member is deemed to be a resident either of the county in which the military installation, or other place at which the member has been stationed, is located or of the county in which the member has sojourned. (Maine Revised Statutes - Title 4 - Sections: 155 and Title 19-A - Section 902)

If you DO NOT meet at least one of the above Maine residency requirements, you have the following options:

How Do I Prove Residency in Maine?
Maine requires the petitioner to live in the state for 6 months and the divorce paperwork provides the court with your sworn statement. Proving that you live in Maine would require you to provide the court with various documents that include a current Maine address, or date when you moved and took up residence in Maine such as a signed and dated lease agreement bank account statements, voterโ€™s registration card or driverโ€™s license.
