Venue is a legal term which reflects the particular County where the Divorce case will be filed. Sometimes, a spouse may have the choice as to where the Divorce case can be filed. For example, the husband may reside in Hennepin County and the wife may reside in Dakota County. In such a case, it is almost always a good idea to talk to an attorney regarding the merits of one particular County versus the other County. For example, in one County, one Judicial Officer will handle the divorce proceeding from beginning to end, whereas in another County, different Judicial Officers may preside over the same case at different times.
