I am often asked how to get divorced when your spouse and child live out of state. If you want to get divorced in the state of New Jersey, but your spouse has moved out of the state with the children, it will be necessary to ascertain which state will have jurisdiction. If your children have lived out of the state for six months or longer, they may be considered to have established residency in the state where they currently live – even if you continue to live in New Jersey.
