WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DIVORCE - JURISDICTION, GROUNDS

Question #103:
I dissolved my divorce in the United States but my ex is in a foreign
country. My question is if this divorce is valid in that country or I
may have to request a new divorce there. Please, I am concerned I might
have problems there.
Please let me know.
thank you.

Answer:

In order to answer your question , I would have to see exactly what you are referring to as "dissolved " you divorce. In which state in the US did you receive the divorce? Do you have a judgment of the divorce signed by a judge, and was it filed in the proper place? You also do not indicate what country you are speaking about when you referred to whether it will except a "US" divorce. Generally , most jurisdictions accept legitimate divorce decrees , if they are properly prepared & they do not violate any of the laws of the country in which you are asking to have them enforced.
