In order for Arkansas courts to have jurisdictional rights to hear the divorce case, the spouses must meet the established residency requirements of the state.
Either spouse must have been a resident of Arkansas for at least 60 days before filing for a divorce.
The Petition for divorce must be filed in the county where the plaintiff (the spouse who initiates a divorce) lives. If the plaintiff is not a resident of Arkansas, then the divorce papers may be filed within the county where the other spouse resides.
