Can I File for Divorce in Pennsylvania?

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

Either spouse must be a resident of the state of Pennsylvania for at least six months prior to filing. A proceeding for divorce or annulment may be brought in the county: A.where the defendant resides; B. if the defendant resides outside of this Commonwealth, where the plaintiff resides; C. of matrimonial domicile, if the plaintiff has continuously resided in the county; D. prior to six months after the date of final separation and with agreement of the defendant, where the plaintiff resides or, if neither party continues to reside in the county of matrimonial domicile, where either party resides; or E.after six months after the date of final separation, where either party resides. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3104)

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

How Do I Prove Residency in Pennsylvania?
To file for divorce in Pennsylvania, the petitioner must be a resident of for at least six months prior to filing. You are providing sworn statement to your court stating you lived in Pennsylvania at least 6 months prior to file, which should be sufficient. If the court would require further proof of residency, a Pennsylvania driver's license or state identification would be acceptable or an affidavit of a corroborating witness testifying about residency also works. In other words, the petitioner substantiates residency by his or her sworn complaint. The testimony is all that most courts require to verify residency; however, actions have been dismissed and even overturned because of improper proof of residency.
