Thanks to continued advancements in the field of information and communications technology, it’s becoming easier and easier to conduct anything international online, whether it’s holding meetings, attending lectures, or just talking face-to-face with friends and family.
The fact remains, however, that despite this technological evolution, people are still traveling, working and attending school outside the U.S. in record numbers. While this reality speaks to the enduring value of real world experiences, it also speaks to the reality that more international travel means more international friendships, more international relationships and, of course, more international marriages.
Indeed, these international unions may see couples put down roots here in the U.S., or split their time between here, and one or more foreign nations.
Regardless of their back story or living arrangements, the fact remains that things can rapidly become very complicated from a legal perspective when couples who tied the knot in a foreign nation attempt to divorce here in the U.S.
That’s because they will not only have to deal with already challenging issues ranging from alimony and property division to child custody and child support, but also have to address any unique divorce concerns or other jurisdictional conflicts that arise.
In light of this, anyone seeking to secure a divorce here in the U.S. after being married abroad will want to ensure that the attorney whose services they retain is well-versed in both domestic and international divorce matters.
At The Siemon Law Firm, our attorneys have considerable experience representing couples looking to secure a divorce here in Georgia subsequent to their marriage abroad.
