Multi-State Divorce Issues
When divorces contain issues that fall under the jurisdiction of multiple states, another layer of complexity is added. Either spouse might currently be living in Texas, but if the other spouse has resided in another state for six months or longer, nuanced issues related to property division, custody and support issues may come into play.
Every state contains its own specific jurisdictional issues that must be addressed in these cases. First and foremost, it is necessary to determine what court is one filing for the divorce. If one does not properly understand this, the process can be delayed significantly, in addition to lost money.
