A: The divorce action does not have to be filed in the county where you were married but should be filed in the county where one of you resides. There are attorneys who will file for the divorce in other counties, such as Potter County, because the filing fees are less but I would not recommend doing that, For one, if you ever find yourself having to enforce any part of your divorce settlement agreement, you'll have to go to Potter County to do so. In my opinion, the cbest advice is to file in a county where you or your husband resides and not in a county that has no contacts with you.
A: Alimony is usually non-modifiable but it depends on what your property settlement agreement or equitable distribution order says. Please schedule a private consultation with a local attorney experienced in family law to review your alimony award and learn what options you might have.
