My husband filed for divorce in the county where he lived for a short time. Is it legal?

He lived in Berks county and we
resided in York County while married. I
still live in York County. Now he lived in
Cumberland County. Are the divorce
papers legal?

It depends of whether or not he lived there long enough to obtain legal residencey. Typically takes 3-6 months or more to establish residency. You can check online for residency requirements in the specfic state in question. If he filed and was not a resident, then the filing can be dismissed.
