Complications with Expatriate Divorce


A marriage that occurs oversees or between citizens of different countries can be difficult. More difficult than this, however, is a divorce between an international couple. International divorces are complex issues since the laws governing divorce will depend on the origin of each of the spouses. Separations and divorce are made more complicated with the involvement of shared estates or children. Child custody and child support agreements are often included in initial divorce settlements in order to distinguish the custodial responsibilities for both parents. Due to the commonality of working and living abroad, it is not unusual for individuals to marry and share estates with an international spouse. To protect yourself, your family, and your possessions, it is important to hire a competent and knowledgeable lawyer.
