Can I File for Divorce in New York?

What Are the Residency Requirements to File for Divorce in New York?
The state of New York has unique residency requirements for people who wish to terminate their marriage. You must meet these state-specific requirements prior to filing with the Supreme Court of the State of New York for your County. The New York residency requirements are as follows:

An action for divorce or separation may be maintained only when:

A. The parties were married in the state and either party is a resident thereof when the action is commenced and has been a resident for a continuous period of one year immediately preceding, or

B. The parties have resided in this state as husband and wife and either party is a resident thereof when the action is commenced and has been a resident for a continuous period of one year immediately preceding, or

C. The cause occurred in the state and either party has been a resident thereof for a continuous period of at least one year immediately preceding the commencement of the action, or

D. The cause occurred in the state and both parties are residents thereof at the time of the commencement of the action, or

E. Either party has been a resident of the state for a continuous period of at least two years immediately preceding the commencement of the action. (Consolidated Laws of New York - Domestic Relations Laws - Article 13 - Sections: 230 and 231)

If you DO NOT meet at least one of the above New York residency requirements, you have the following options:

How Do I Prove Residency in New York?
New York has a few different ways to meet residency to file for divorce. In any of the instances to meet residency, you must live in New York for at least 1 year or more to be considered a resident of New York. You are signing a verified complaint stating that you are a resident and have been for 1 year. Also, even if you live in a different state for a short period of time (for work or military status), but you consider New York your home, and you consider New York to be your permanent residence, you are considered a resident of the state.
