    Default Do You Divorce in The State Where You Married, or Where You Live

    My wife and I were married in N. Carolina and have not been residents of the state for 8 years. We lived in California then separated a few years ago. I live in California, and she is in Europe. Given the terms of the divorce will not be contested, we would like to file our own paperwork.

    Given my residency is in California and her last US residency was in California, do we file in California or in N. Carolina? N. Carolina has a clause that you have to be a resident for at least 6 months to file in that state which wont work for either of us. I'm assuming California is the proper place to file but wanted to see if people had a view on this question.

    Thank you.

    You can file in California. Presumably either you or she could file in whatever country she's presently living in, but you'll have to investigate that for yourself.
