I am married and would like to file for divorce. I use to be a resident in GA but I moved to Chesapeake,VA . Neither my husband or I are asking or claiming anything.
I would like to know if I can file for divorce here in Chesapeake,VA or would I have to file for it in Georgia?

No, if you're now considered as legally domiciled in Virginia, i.e., have the necessary
documentation such as a driver's license, voter registration card, utility bills, copy of
lease, etc., which support your claim of residency in the Commonwealth for at least six
months or more, you should now be able to file your action for divorce in the local circuit court of the city or county in Virginia where you currently reside.
