Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your divorce jurisdiction question today. I'm attorney Bill answering your request this evening.

Nevada like other States imposes a 6 month residency requirement upon applicants wishing to file in the Family court/ District court for a divorce.

Residency can be proved by another resident filing an affidavit of resident witness with the court; this paper is notarized before a notary public.

If you have yet to establish residency in Nevada you could file in your present State or wait until you have been physically present for 6 months in Nevada.

One party to the proceedings will need to be a resident.

We are here to help so please follow up with me as required.

In return your positive rating is much appreciated.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated in this regard.

Thanks

Attorney Bill
