Any advice?

Yes. The fact that she lives in Europe doesn’t have any impact on a proceeding in North Carolina if one of you chooses to move forward in North Carolina as long as she is subject to the jurisdiction of North Carolnia. I suggest you meet with an attorney and consider the option of pursuing your claims in NC vs. the european country.

Good luck.

Thank you very much for your reply. What is advantage to pursuer the claim in NC?


#3

The main advantage of proceeding in NC is that you are in NC. Although possible, I think going to court remotely would be more difficult and more expensive. I know I prefer to see my lawyer face-to-face rather than just using the telephone. Also, many European countries have a bias for the mother, so alimony and custody are likely to be be less favorable to you.

That bias bewildered spoke of exhists in every state in this country, except it’s probably worse. Unfortunately, being a male, you get to start the legal process with 4 strikes against you.

Dear hawkman:

Greetings. Your main advantage is on being here. The difficulty will be in enforcing the action in Eurpoe. Also, if you file here in North Carolina, then you have the child support guidelines and you have an idea on how much the child support will be.

Finally, if you file for child support in North Carolina with the NC Child Support Enforcement Agency, you have basically free representation on getting support from the other parent. Good luck.

Hello,
I was wondering if this forum can help me on this. Me and my wife are not US citizens and we about to divorce. She lives in Europe and I live in NC, my question is: will I required to share the house that I bought in NC. I was wondering if anybody can answer this or redirect me to an international marriage related forums?
Thanks in advance.
