Question #132: We were married in NY five years ago and then moved to CT soon after. Is it possible for me to remain in CT- but use a NY lawyer? I feel that NY is a better place to get a divorce in.

If your spouse is still living in New York, you can file in New York. If both of you are living outside of New York for over one-year, you will most likely have to file in the state in which you are living for the last year.

And if your husband is still living in New York, I strongly recommend that you call me and at 212-370-1660 to arrange for a meeting for us to discuss mediating your divorce. It will be most much cheaper, faster and less traumatic.
