Filing for divorce after a spouse moves overseas

On Behalf of | Mar 29, 2019 | High Asset Divorce |

There are countless reasons why marriages crumble, but some divorces are very unique. For example, a spouse may move to another country, whether they want to live in the country they grew up in or they have decided to relocate across the world for work. When someone heads abroad for a long period of time, their marriage may fall apart. Affairs, uncertainty, anger about the decision and growing apart are some of the reasons why this decision can adversely affect a marital relationship. If you are in this position, you should review your options carefully.

Not only can divorce issues be tough for those who stay behind, but people living in another country may be unsure of what to do when they learn that their spouse wants to end the marriage. Moreover, these divorces can be particularly tough when kids are involved, especially when it comes to child custody. You should always work to protect your interests and obtain the most favorable outcome and realize how much may be at stake during your divorce. Property division, child support and attending court are just some of the matters that can be complicated for couples who are going through this.

When a marriage is no longer working out, people should never feel like they are trapped. Regardless of the reason(s) why your marriage may be ending, you could have a number of legal options to explore and there may be a variety of divorce-related topics that you will need to take a closer look at.
