If married in one state but live in another state, where would you file for divorce?
M.D., Member, California And New York Bar / FreeAdvice Contributing Attorney Answered 1 year ago | Contributor
A person files for a divorce in the state in which either they or their spouse have legal residence. The state in which they were married has no bearing (unless of course that is now where either of them now reside).
