Re: Divorce in Two States - Where to File
You need a lawyer that practices in whatever state you file the suit in.
I believe I am an Indiana resident now, but not sure a lawyer here could help me.
I believe you can file in either your state (Indiana) or his state (Florida). Each state simply requires one of the parties involved to have lived in the state for a minimum of 6 months. I saw nothing to preclude that from allowing the out of state resident to file in the other parties state.
If you file in Florida, Florida law will apply and you will have to attend court and hearings in Florida. If you file in Indiana, Indiana law will be applied and the court and hearings will take place in Indiana.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
