Divorce in another state


#1

My husband and I have decided to separate and he is most likely moving to another state, Nevada. If he files for divorce in Nevada, will it be valid here, and could he later sue me for equitable distribution in North Carolina? Thank you.

Nevada is the most liberal divorce state, but you still have to be a resident there for 6 weeks to file. That should give you time to file in NC if you can’t get a settlement done.


#3

I guess what I mean is, if he files and gets the divorce in Nevada, could he later come back and try to get money from me in NC, or once the divorce is done, no matter where it is, is that it?

Equitable distribution and alimony claims die upon divorce.
