Legal Seperation made in Ca, but live in NC


#1

Courts in each state are required to give full faith and credit to the decisions of courts in other states. The California document may be given some meaning here in North Carolina if the California court had jurisdiction to enter the order. It is not clear to me, however, what the document would mean and how it would affect you here in NC. Take it to a lawyer and ahve it reviewed.
