Understanding Types of International Divorce

Our Houston international divorce attorneys have handled a huge variety of cases relating to international divorce and family law. Some types of international divorce and family law cases we regularly navigate include:

  • International divorce: There are several types of international divorce and family law case, and each has varied considerations and complications. International divorces can be considerably more complex and challenging to understand, as laws in foreign countries differ significantly, and the application of the usual family laws of Texas may be impacted by the geographical situation of the parties.
  • Expatriate divorce and custody: Expatriates sometimes experience difficult obstacles when confronting divorce and pursuing custody of their children. For example, expatriates do not always have the same level of support and can feel isolated when they're outside of their home countries during the legal process. Additionally, the legal framework is more convoluted when the two members of the marriage are from different countries.
  • Mahr agreements: The Mahr agreements and other marriage contracts from around the world can be challenging to comprehend, as they may have religious or cultural underpinnings that need to be recognized to understand best how they operate. The lawyers at Diggs & Sadler can provide details on your legal rights on options regarding Mahr and other international marriage contracts.
