“I just moved to Oklahoma. May I file for divorce here?

“I just moved to Oklahoma. May I file for divorce?”  Unless the party has been living in Oklahoma for six months, they may not file for divorce in Oklahoma.  The jurisdictional requirements for a divorce in Oklahoma require the filing party to be a resident of Oklahoma for the past six months.  However, the durational requirement for Oklahoma legal separation is only one day.  Therefore, if someone has recently moved to Oklahoma, although they may not be able to obtain a divorce, they may be able to file for separation.
