Working With Different Jurisdictions
Depending on your situation, you may need to navigate the laws of different jurisdictions. If you or your partner lives in the United States and the other lives abroad or is moving abroad, you are likely eligible to complete your divorce through the local court system.
Depending on your situation and citizenship, your case may be complex. It is important to have proper legal guidance before you begin the process of ending your marriage.
