Divorce laws are governed by the laws of the state that you reside in. In New York, you get divorced in the Supreme Court in the county in which you reside. The divorce case is handled like any other lawsuit. By taking a case to court, it’s called litigation. Those cases can go on for several years and they can be extremely expensive.
