If my previous application for divorce was dismissed, do I need to re-file again at the same courthouse? Or can I file at a different courthouse? 2 Answers as of March 13, 2017

Last year my divorce case was dismissed because my wife filed for a motion to have the case transferred to another county and on the day of the hearing I was 10 minutes late to the hearing and the judge dismissed the case.

If your sure that the case was dismissed you can file a new action in any proper county. You can file in the County where either you or your wife have lived for the past 3 months.

You need to file at the courthouse which is in the county where you live. Yes. You do need a new petition.
