If you’ve lived abroad or were born overseas (or your husband was), it may be possible to get divorced outside the UK.
If you were born or lived outside of England and Wales, or if your husband, wife or civil partner was, there may be some flexibility about where you get divorced. It's a complicated area and it depends on a range of circumstances, but it's worth being aware of because, if your ex were to start divorce proceedings he or she may be able to 'choose' the country they take place in.
