Divorce in Wyoming

Divorce is an emotionally difficult process for most people. Even if you are contemplating an uncontested divorce. Ending a relationship that was supposed to last until death did you part is never easy.

The process is even more difficult for couples that have children, and it is especially difficult for couples that have minor children.

In order to file for divorce in Wyoming, you must have resided in the state for at least sixty days prior to filing.  That is the basic jurisdictional requirement.

Your spouse does not have to reside in Wyoming, but if you and your spouse have minor children, then you should probably file in your child’s home state.  A child’s home state is generally the state in which the child has resided for the past six months.
