Divorce might seem like a simple concept, but in fact there are many considerations surrounding the decision to terminate a marriage, and many different remedies the parties can seek in attempting to do so. Those remedies implicate the various differences between divorce law in each state, as divorce law is a creature of state law. There are also a number of issues outside of divorce law to consider - for example, a courts jurisdiction, and conflicts between the laws of several jurisdictions - which one might need to consider when deciding to start down the road to divorce. Where you and your spouse were married, how long you lived there, and where each of you live now, may be key considerations in deciding to take legal action. Whether or not children are involved can also complicate things further.
In these matters, as in any other legal matter, it is crucial to
consult a divorce attorney before taking any major steps toward divorce, and
you should do so if you are considering taking such steps.
