The spouse filing for dissolution of marriage must have been a resident (or a member of the
armed services stationed in Kentucky) for 180 days prior to filing. The dissolution of
marriage may be filed in a county where either spouse usually resides. [Kentucky Revised
Statutes; Title 35, Chapters 403.140 and 452.470].
The only no-fault ground for Kentucky is: Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. A final
dissolution of marriage will not be granted until the spouses have lived apart for 60 days.
("Living apart" is satisfied even if the spouses live in the same house but they may not have
sexual relations). [Kentucky Revised Statutes; Title 35, Chapter 403.140].
