You or your spouse must meet the Iowa residency requirements for the District Court to have jurisdiction of your case. The requirements before filing your Petition for Dissolution of Marriage (the document that initiates your divorce) are as follows:
One spouse must be a resident of the state for a period of at least 1 year prior to filing for the divorce. The parties shall file for a dissolution of marriage in the county where either party resides.
In order to use this service, you and your spouse must agree (or eventually agree) on getting the divorce. Your spouse's participation is minimal, being he or she will only have to sign a few documents and return them to you for filing with the court.
The most common "uncontested" ground for divorce in Iowa is:
Allege that there has been a breakdown of the marriage relationship to the extent that the legitimate objects of matrimony have been destroyed and there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.
