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

Question #211:
Hi,

My husband and I were married in Massachusetts 9 years ago. Up until recently, we lived in California for the past 4 years.

My husband has moved to NY. I am still in California.

Can/when can I file for divorce in NY?


Answer:


One of the parties must reside in NY for 2 years for NY to have jurisdiction
unless the couple lived in NY during the marriage or the marriage took place in NY,
in which case the residency requirement would be 1 year.
