Scenarios And Concerns Of Cross-Border Divorce

Questions of jurisdiction must be resolved when more than one country’s laws may apply to your property division, child custody or other issues with international dimensions. Your divorce may be considered international if:

  • You got married abroad and now live in New York, where one or both of you will file for divorce.
  • You and your spouse, both in New York, share marital property, such as real estate or financial accounts, located in another country.

Whatever special situations apply in your case, Mattingly Cavagnaro LLP is a wise choice as you seek qualified legal counsel. The lawyers at this firm are prepared to consult and collaborate with law firms in other countries, as necessary. They will keep you thoroughly informed about the most efficient and promising ways forward.
