Both now live in Alameda County
Could he have filed in another county without telling her and still get the divorce?
No she did not.
My fiance is presently in New York and she has received " A waiver of fees" to file an uncontested divorce. Presently, she has dual residency. She lives in New York now but goes back to her apartment in Oakland at least once a year for several months.
Can she file for divorce in New York against her ex-husband in Oakland.
Sorry for the delay and confusion but no, she never received anything from her ex. She decided on her own that she would pursue a divorce if he did not supply her with an answer.
This is just an option she was looking into. Seems we are stuck unless he cooperates and by the way, this guy would break the law to achieve his ends, he has before. Thanks for the info, if you have anything other thoughts please share them now.
