Buffalo Divorce Attorney Outlines How Long One Must be a Resident in New York Before Filing Divorce
As a skilled Buffalo Divorce Attorney, people who come to me initially with questions about divorce are often wondering about whether or not they’ve lived in the state of New York long enough to obtain a divorce. That raises the issue of jurisdiction. In New York you have to reside in the state for a period of one year before you have jurisdiction to have New York state hear your divorce. You do need to establish that period of residency before the action can be filed. Only one party needs to reside in the state for that period of time.
