Houston Multi-State Divorce Lawyer
Multi-state divorces can present immensely complicated issues. If, for instance, a spouse lives in a different state for six months, all of a sudden those states’ jurisdictional requirements are involved in a divorce proceeding. That means that each party can file for divorce in his or her own state, and each state will have different rules for how things work out.
This means that it is necessary for an attorney to understand the divorce issues in all involved states. Oftentimes, this requires retaining counsel in the other state to resolve that end of things.
When children are involved, there is a uniform code or statute by which most states abide called the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. This gives rules that need to be filed for jurisdictional purposes and defines the lawsuit with children. In practice, this means that parties are faced with handling a divorce in two different states; in actuality, all property division could fall under the jurisdiction of one state and the child support issues could fall under the jurisdiction of the other.
It goes without saying that an ideal outcome must come from an experienced legal team’s multi-state expertise. We are prepared to provide that.
