Fortunately I live in a no-fault divorce state, and I'm not considering divorce right now, but I'm just curious:
If you live in a place where the divorce laws are not favorable for you, could you move to another state or country (with or without your spouse accompanying you) and file for divorce there, to take advantage of more favorable divorce laws?
Or, on the other side of the coin, if your marriage is on the brink of divorce, and you or your spouse are considering moving to a place with less favorable divorce laws, should you file for divorce in your current location immediately?
Good questions to put to ones' lawyer Brother jamesbonding .
In my jurisdiction the divorce laws are Federal and it does not matter a rats arse what state within the Commonwealth of Australia you reside, or file in.
I understand that in the US divorce laws may vary from state to state.
Something else to consider - Even if your marriage is "made in heaven" it doesn't hurt to know how a divorce would shake out for you. There are about 4 current members here who also were "not considering divorce right now" and their spouse blindsided them and filed first, much to the ILIASM members surprise and consternation. The continuation (or otherwise) of your marriage is not solely at your discretion....it's as well to keep that in mind.

Before my ex and I split we were discussing moving to a different state so I researched how a divorce would shake out for me both in the current state and in the new state. I learned that in order to file for divorce in the new state we would have had to be residents there for at least a year. I am under the impression there are at least some US states that have this rule.
Btw: There were things that would have been to my advantage if we moved and I filed in the new state but it wasn’t worth wasting another year of my life and my sanity.

lifeinwoodinville: I last heard from mrslowmaintenance about a month ago. I have been in regular contact with her for the last year and a half. I feel comfortable in saying that her situation remains unchanged. If you want to know more PM me.

petrushka: I was gobsmacked when I heard. This is just not us. In all of 2017 we had 37 murders in the country ..... I think the echo chambers of "social media" have a lot to answer for.

misssunnybunny: petrushka, I thought I read the headline wrong (this stuff happens here, not in NZ). It is frightening the hate that is being spread; it makes my heart hurt.

saarinista: All of us, IMHO, should try to be civil and kind as much as possible in person and online. I actively Tweet (civilly) on political matters and am horrified by the rancor & trolling on both sides of the spectrum, which only inflames unstable people.
