The following chart displays the paths for determining whether you qualify to file a divorce in Massachusetts. Our hope is that this infographic can help clarify the confusing question of jurisdiction over a divorce case in Massachusetts by consolidating the statutes and case law into one chart.
As we discussed in a previous post, just because you can file for divorce does not necessarily mean the court has jurisdiction over all issues in your case. If your case involves residency, property, or children living in multiple states, you should definitely consult with an attorney.
