To get a divorce in Maine, you need to present your case to a judge. Once you do, the judge has the authority to grant a divorce immediately. However, there is normally an appeal period.
Divorces go through a similar process in most states, but each state has its own requirements to begin a divorce. In Maine, you or your spouse will have to have been a resident for at least six months or have been married in Maine to seek a divorce there. You may also be able to divorce in Maine if you were living there when the cause for your divorce took place.
Divorces are different in every state, and Maine is no exception. Maine has residency requirements, no-fault grounds for divorces and other grounds you can choose.
Much like any other state in the country, anyone wanting to divorce in Maine must meet certain eligibility requirements in order to file. These are outlined in the Maine Code Revised Title 19-A, Chapter 29: Divorce.
