We extend the rigorous theory of complex scaling to atoms in constant electric field. This allows one to give a precise mathematical definition of resonance and leads to several results about the perturbation series: Borel summability at nonreal field and a relation between the asymptotics of the perturbation coefficients for large n and the width of the resonance for small field.
