Massachusetts Divorce Details


There's no minimum in-state residency requirement if at least one spouse was living in Massachusetts when the marriage broke down.


If you and your spouse have differences that you can't resolve, you qualify for no-fault divorce.

Filing for Divorce

If either of you still lives in the county where you last lived together as a couple, file for divorce in that county. Otherwise, file in the county where either spouse lives now. Divorces are filed at the Probate Court Clerk's office.

The procedure for filing your divorce is easy in Massachusetts. Just take or mail all of your divorce papers to the Court Clerk's office. You can file all of your paperwork at once so there's no confusing multi-step filing.

Getting Your Divorce Finalized

In an uncontested divorce, the judge usually signs the Findings of Fact and Decree of Dissolution finalizing the divorce 60-days from the date the divorce was filed. Each spouse will receive a signed copy in the mail.
