Q: HI, I want to get a divorce from my husband. How would I go about that? I live in pa and he lives in Broome ny.
I been here only a mouth and a half. He wanted this and won't do nothing about it. We have 2 kids which I have and he don't pay child support.
A: Don’t make the mistake of trying to get something filed just to get it started. There are timelines that affect jurisdiction in family law matters and you want to understand the consequences of the decisions you make. Consultation with an attorney in your area can help you weigh the costs and benefits of this decision. Good luck.
A: I agree with Attorney Boyd. In order to file in PA, you'll need to have lived here for six months. Do yourself a favor and take the time to consult with an experienced family law attorney to learn your rights and options before doing anything. You should do so as soon as possible as it may be to your benefit to file for support here in PA.
