What if I moved out of Massachusetts before getting a divorce?

Updated: Jun 4, 2018

Perhaps you and your spouse have been separated for a while and now you are ready to pursue the divorce. You are considering divorce mediation and using a Massachusetts divorce mediator. The remaining spouse must have lived in Massachusetts for at least one year preceding the commencement of the divorce if the cause of the divorce occurred elsewhere (perhaps you two were living in another state at that time). There is no waiting period if the remaining spouse lives in Massachusetts and the cause of the divorce occurred while living in Massachusetts. Attorney Kaplan has successfully mediated divorces when one spouse relocates either prior to the commencement of or during the Massachusetts divorce mediation process. Discuss your options with Massachusetts divorce mediator Kaplan. She will waive the first 1/2 hour of your divorce mediation consultation.
