A: You do not have to get divorced in the state you married in. If neither you nor your wife live in North Carolina, North Carolina may not be an option for you. Check your state's law to determine where you should file for divorce. In Virginia you typically file in the city or county where you last cohabited with your spouse or the city or county where the defendant resides.
