WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DIVORCE - JURISDICTION, GROUNDS

Question #136:
If someone is residing in NY and was married in NY and wants to get a divorce quickly in another state or country can they do that? There are no children in the marriage. And they have decided amicably how to divide the assets.


Answer:


Each State has its own residency requirements ( e.g. in NY it is generally a minimum of one year
and could be up to two years, depending on certain circumstances) before it will accept jurisdiction in a divorce matter.
I would be very wary of out of country (i.e. Mexico, Dominican Republic, etc.) quickie divorces for cheap.
BUYER BEWARE!
