Residency: Plaintiff must be a resident of the state for at least 60 days prior to filing or if the marriage took place in the state, Plaintiff must have been a resident from the time of marriage until the time of filing.

Legal Separation Recognized? Yes. Alimony, property distribution and child support can be awarded.

Property Distribution: Wyoming relies on “equitable distribution” so the court will distribute the marital property “in an equitable manner” if the parties can’t agree on their own. Separate property (property acquired prior to the marriage, as a gift or through inheritance) is not included in property distribution.

Alimony: Alimony may be awarded to either party at the discretion of the court.
