Where Do I File For Divorce?

"Where do I file for divorce?" This is a question our Indiana divorce attorneys are asked frequently. To file for divorce in Indiana, you must have lived in the state for six months prior to filing. Additionally, you must have lived in the county in which you are filing for divorce for three months.

In addition to answering questions about where to file for divorce, our attorneys answer questions such as:

  • What state can issue a divorce decree to terminate my marriage?
  • If I have not lived in Indiana for six months, where do I file?
  • If I moved to another state less than six months ago, where do I file?
  • Can I file a child custody request in one state and a child support request in another state?
