Families have never been so likely to settle across borders. Yet a move to a different country can put much stress on a marriage. One spouse may adapt seamlessly to his or her new country, while the other misses family, friends and career opportunities back home. Even a strong marriage may not always survive this test.
What happens if this couple divorces? Will the spouses’ French prenuptial agreement be enforced by a California court? What if one spouse files for divorce in Paris, and the other in Los Angeles? And what if one parent takes the children back to Europe for a summer vacation, and “forgets” to return to the United States? These are the questions we are prepared to answer.
