Not sure why you were denied based on jurisdictional issues. Generally speaking, an individual must be a bona fide resident of the county in which they file for divorce (or the respondent) for 3 months prior to the time of filing.

You should call and speak with a family law attorney who9 can get the necessary details of your particular set of circumstances.
