Question about divorce?

I am wondering if you were married in one state, but have always lived in the bordering state even at the time of marriage, do you follow the divorce laws for the state you were married in?

  • I think it boils down to where you file the divorce papers.

  • It's which ever state you file for the divorce.

  • So would you file for divorce in the state you live in? I have no idea where to even begin.

  • Where you currently live is what determines the "rules" or "laws" of the divorce. I had "friends" that were barely living in one county (base is set in 2 counties here), and had to drive 2 hrs away to go to that counties' seat in order to file for divorce, when the closest place was only maybe 20 min drive away, so depending on the state, it also may depend on which county you reside in as well.
