Family Law Fridays- Can You Get a Divorce from Someone Who is Out of State?
Can you get divorced from someone if they are in another state? Another similar question to that is – can you get divorced from someone if you have no idea where they – and I will answer that question during next week’s Wednesday Divorce Wisdom – so make sure you tune in for that if that is a burning question you have.
But for today – the question I am answering is can you get divorced from someone if they live in another state:
So the short answer is yes – of course. BUT there is a bit more to getting them served and getting what the law calls personal jurisdiction over that person.
You will have to put some special language into your complaint or petition - whatever your initial divorce pleading is called in your jurisdiction - that is called Long Arm Language.
It is called that because you are basically asking the local jurisdiction to reach out with a super long arm and pull that person back to your jurisdiction – and the reasons could be because that person has a lot of contacts with that state – meaning they do business there, they have real estate there –or maybe some other reason –
Then a special process server will have to be appointed in the place where your spouse lives – there is a bit of a process with that too.
But to answer the question – can you divorce someone who is out of state – the answer is YES!
