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

Question #137:
A little over 3 years ago my daughter, a US citizen,
moved to the United Kingdom and married. Her husband,
2 1/2 years later, moved to Singapore. She lived in
London for 7 months alone then moved to Singapore for
one month and now realizes the marriage is over. How,
and, where can she file for a legal separation or
divorce?

Answer:


Generally, she should file where she is residing . Each jurisdiction has
its own minimum residency requirements in order to hear the case . For instance, NY
requires a minimum of one to two years, depending on certain circumstances.

If she intends to return to NY, have her call me at 212-370-1660
and we can discuss the matter further.
