My spouse and I no longer live in the same state? Can we still get a divorce?
Yes. However, there needs to be both subject matter and personal jurisdiction over the case in order for the judge to divorce you in Massachusetts. In general, this means that one party must have lived in Massachusetts for at least one year, or both parties have lived here together. You don’t need to have been married in Massachusetts to be divorced here.
