Oklahoma Residency Requirements Pre-Divorce.
In order to be eligible to file for divorce in Oklahoma, either spouse must have been an actual resident, in good faith, of the state, for the six months immediately preceding the filing of the petition. If the parties are residents, then the next step is filing the action in the county where either the petitioner (spouse filing for divorce) has been a resident for the 30 days immediately preceding the filing of the petition or in the county where the respondent (spouse being served divorce papers) is a resident.
