In order to file for a dissolution of marriage in Missouri, residency requirements must be met for the court to accept the case. If the court discovers it does not have jurisdictional rights to hear the case it will not be accepted or it will eventually be dismissed. To meet jurisdictional requirements one party must be a resident of the state of Missouri, or is a member of the armed services who has been stationed in this state, for ninety (90) days immediately preceding the commencement of the proceeding and thirty days must have elapsed since the filing of the petition before the dissolution of marriage will be granted.
So, if he does not reside in Missouri then he can file if you are a Missouri resident.
