Montana Residency Requirements for Divorce

Montana has a 90-day residency requirement to file for divorce.  This means that at least one spouse must be a resident of Montana for at least 90 days before filing for divorce.

A common mistake people make is believing that they must get divorced in the state in which they were married. This is not true. Most divorce cases are filed in the county in which the filing spouse resides.
