Jurisdiction

Keeping Your Complex Divorce Issues in Check

For divorcing parents or spouses who live in the same state, jurisdiction generally doesn’t come up. However, the process can get much more complex when one parent moves away. When that happens, courts from each state must hear arguments to determine your child’s “home state.” The court in that state will have jurisdiction (or authority based on location) to make orders related to your divorce. Jurisdiction can also be an element in military divorce. When you’re dealing with complicated issues like jurisdiction, make sure your lawyer always keeps you informed about your rights and your options.

Jurisdiction can affect matters like:

  • Property division
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Visitation
