How does a same-sex divorce in DC work if you no longer live in DC?
I have received numerous calls from people who were married in DC and are in a same-sex marriage, but, neither party currently lives in DC.
How do you file for a same-sex divorce in DC?
The requirements are the same for any divorce:
- One of the parties must have been a resident of DC for at least six months prior to filing for divorce
- You must be separated for at least six months mutually and voluntarily
- Or for one year if the separation was not mutual and voluntary
It is always best to speak with a family law attorney so you know exactly what is required.
