Working through a divorce of any kind is a stressful and complicated situation for any family. When dealing with laws in two separate states, it’s time to call in an expert interstate divorce attorney. Procedures surrounding interstate divorce require deep knowledge of each state’s court rules, laws, and the unique situation of the couple.
Both parties must have properly been served notice of the pending divorce petition, and certain issues such as child support and custody, spousal support, and disposition of property also come into play when sorting out where divorce proceedings must take place. Minnesota requires that at least one of the parties to the divorce has resided there for at least 180 days (6 months) or that he/she is domiciled in Minnesota. “Residence” and “domicile” have legal definitions that are crucial to understand for someone who wants to move forward with a divorce in Minnesota.
