Me and my husband are married for 3 years now. We're not good anymore, i am also and he is living in CA for about 5 years and myself, i was living in CA for almost 3 years but then i moved in the state of NJ last year on August 2014. I am pregnant and the father is my present boyfriend. We can't get married cause i am still married.How am i going to file a Divorce to a Divorce center when i am living here in NJ and he is in CA. Thank you very much in advance for the answers ..
You need to reside in NJ for 1 year before filing for divorce unless your H committed adultery in wh ich case you do not have to wait to file for divorce in NJ. Otherwise if your H is in CA you will have to hire legal counsel in CA to file for your divorce or wait until August 2015 to file in NJ for divorce.
I agree with Catherine's answer. Unfortunately, you will have to wait another seven months to file in NJ, unless you are citing adultery as your cause of action. Good luck!
