  • If your spouse lives outside NY, and you resided for at least two years prior to commencement, you can file in New York, and still get jurisdiction over your spouse.
  • The issues becomes how long the person filing has actually resided in NY State.
  • As long as compliance is there, you can file in New York and serve anywhere in the country without problem.
