You can file the case where you last resided with your wife together.

You can file the case where you have last resided with your wife 


where the marriage was solemanised


where you reside

It is better to seek professional services of a local prudent lawyer.

Yes, you can; howver, your wife has the option to seek the transfer of the proceedings to the place where she is residing at present.

Yes you can file divorce where you and your wife lastly resided together. Your wife can apply to transfer the case to her place. So i will suggest you to continue with the present case.

Presently Mr. Manish Gupta wants to know qua jurisdictional court for filing a petition for divorce, however, transfer of the case is a presumption which is not reality.

Best wishes for the coming New Georgian year-2023

According to the Hindu Marriage Act, the woman's last residence, the woman's previous joint habitation, or the location of the marriage's solemnization is sufficient to establish the court's jurisdiction. As such, you must have at least a rent agreement to prove you are a resident of that town.

Well advised by experts herein above, now it is your call to proceed.

Wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Gregorian Year-2023
