Am I Able To Follow Up With My Divorce Even Though My Spouse Is No Longer In The Same State?
Today’s topic came from a conversation that I had with a prospective client who was looking to file for divorce and before filing, her husband decided he wanted to move out of the state.
She had been wanting to file for a while. The husband was threatening her that if she filed, he was never going to sign the paperwork and that he did not want a divorce and that she could not make him divorce her. Ultimately what ended up happening is she decided to go with our firm, she decided to file for a divorce, and when she advised him that that’s what she was going to do, he decided to leave the state. During our conversation she asked the following question:
Am I still able to follow up with my divorce even though my husband is no longer in the same state?
The answer to that is YES!
You can continue with a divorce if your spouse does not live in the state that you are in. The only thing in Nevada that you have to do to start a divorce process is to establish residency, which means that you have to live here for six weeks before filing for your divorce. It does not mean that your spouse has to live here. As long as one of you lives here in the state of Nevada for six weeks before filing, you are able then to begin the divorce process.
Your spouse will then have to respond and answer your complaint here in the court that you started the divorce process.
