What state can he file in?


#1

He can seek a divorce in Texas once he has established the necessary period of residency. If you do get served, be sure to seek the advice of an attorney before you respond. In NC, it is important to resolve your financial issues incident to your separation prior to a judgment of divorce; such as your claims, if any, for spousal support, alimony and equitable distribution of assets and debts. Once a judgment of divorce is rendered certain rights are waived. An attorney can be certain that your rights and claims are preserved.
