I was married in Texas, but now my wife lives in Georgia, and I live in Colorado, do we have to file for divorce in Texas?

Highlands Ranch, CO |

She left me and I haven't talked to her in 18 years but we never got divorce, because I could not find her.

  1. You may be able to obtain a divorce in Colorado. However if your wife has never lived in CO then the CO Court will not have jurisdiction to determine property division and maintenance. You could obtain a divorce in the jurisdiction where your wife resides as well. Since neither of you live in Texas it is unlikely that the Texas Court's would take jurisdiction.
