Hi, thanks for your question. Unfortunately you will only be able to pursue a divorce if either of you live in England or Wales. If neither of you live in England, the courts will not accept jurisdiction for an application for divorce.

I appreciate that this may not be the answer you would have hoped for but if you found my information provided helpful please could you rate my response positively using the stars at the top of this page as I will not be credited for my response without a positive rating.
