Get Help Filing for Divorce in Iowa
Protecting Your Rights, Future & Best Interests
When seeking a divorce, there are a few legal requirements that must be met in order to finalize the proceedings. Iowa is a no-fault state, which means that a spouse seeking a divorce does not have to prove that the other spouse caused the marriage to fail. In order to file for divorce, one of the spouses must have been a state resident for at least 1 year and must complete a 90-day waiting period before the divorce becomes final.
Iowa Divorce Residency Requirements
It’s a common misconception that you can only get divorced in that state that you were married in. This is simply not the case – even if you were married in another state, you can file for divorce in Iowa so long as you first meet a residency requirement. The requirement states that:
- You and your spouse must be Iowa residents for at least one year prior to filing
- You must have lived in the county that you are filing for at least 90 days prior to filing
If you do not meet the residency requirement, your case will not be accepted, or it will eventually be dismissed.
