Mensagem:  Residing and domiciled in the State of Delaware, United States of America...

1) Note that I switched "Delaware State" to "the state of Delaware".  It sounds more natural.  I believe the practice is to write "State of Delaware" when you are speaking of its government.  In other words, it's part of a title.  In the above phrase, however, you are using "state" in the sense of a unit, not a governmental body. 

2) "Domiciled" is correct, but it's rarely used.   It also appears redundant.  If you are residing in Delaware, aren't you domiciled there too?  I wish you had given the context.  It would sound more natural if you had written "A permanent resident of the state of Delaware...", "With permanent residence in the state of Delaware...", etc.
