Asked on: 8/30/13, 4:54 am

If a divorce case is open in one state but both parties have moved to another state over a year ago and there is also a divorce case filed in state where both parties have moved to, does the judge in state where the parties have moved have jurisdiction over the case or does the judge in original state have jurisdiction?

Until such time you and your soon to be ex-husband request a change in jurisdiction, the original court retains jurisdiction.
