Herndon, VA asked in Divorce for New York

Q: Want to file for divorce in NY, currently not resident, need to care for my parents in NY

I was married in NY years ago, currently resident of another state and want to file for divorce. I am in need to move back to NY to care for my parents. Am I better off to move to NY with my children to care for my parents then file for divorce? If so how long do my children need to be residents of NY? How long do I need to be resident of NY before I can file for divorce? I am afraid if I file in another state I will not be able to leave with my children to care for my parents until divorce is settled…….any suggestions?
