Houston Jurisdictional Dispute Lawyers
Is There a Jurisdictional Conflict Involved in Your Divorce or Modification Case?
Jurisdictional conflicts often arise in divorce or modification cases where you do not reside in the same state as the other parent, as it may become difficult to serve divorce papers filed in one state to a person elsewhere. There are many strategies that may be employed to resolve these sorts of issues effectively, but a divorce or custody modification involving parties in separate states will require the assistance of skilled legal representation and may often call for cooperation between attorneys licensed in both states in order to complete the process.
At Holmes, Diggs & Sadler, our legal team has a wide range of experience dealing with all manner of divorce proceedings and can help you sort through the complex issues surrounding a divorce which involves a dispute over jurisdiction.
To learn more about your rights and legal options, call our experienced Houston jurisdictional dispute attorneys today at (713) 766-5355.
Causes for Jurisdictional Disputes
There are 3 distinct ways in which jurisdictional disputes typically arise, each of which carries unique challenges and requires its own strategies in order to find a solution:
- You own joint property in another state
- Your spouse lives in another state or country
- Your spouse has departed for another state with your children
With the assistance of a skilled attorney, you will be able to assess the benefits of filing in the state you reside in as opposed to the state your spouse resides in, as well as evaluate the potential your ruling has for being upheld and enforced in a state other than your own.
If you have questions regarding the jurisdiction of your divorce for any reason, our legal team is ready to guide and advise you throughout the divorce process.
