Divorce is always complicated. When one of the divorcing spouses lives outside the United States, there are additional jurisdiction and choice-of-law issues that must be addressed. It is important in these cases to be represented by a lawyer who understands how jurisdiction affects all aspects of a divorce.
At Tour-Sarkissian Law Offices, LLP, we have extensive experience representing individuals in international divorces. We work closely with each of our clients to learn his or her unique circumstances, which then allows us to create a legal strategy that places the client in the best possible position for a successful outcome while protecting his or her assets. We also look at the laws in each country where the divorce may be adjudicated when creating our legal strategies to fully prepare clients for possible outcomes.
Our ability to speak many languages allows us not only to speak directly to our foreign clients without the aid of an interpreter, but also to speak and correspond directly with their representatives, lawyers, accountants, financial planners and tax specialists.
Over the years, we have developed strong relationships with a number of family law firms throughout the world. We work with these firms in cases involving child custody, Hague Convention matters concerning child abduction, contested international jurisdiction and international property division matters. When necessary, we can also bring in experts in business valuation, forensic accounting and other issues.
Dedicated To Helping Clients In The Bay Area And Internationally Find Favorable Resolutions To Their Divorces
With increased mobility throughout the country and abroad, family law disputes are increasingly extending beyond national jurisdictions. So when a family law dispute arises, these contesting jurisdiction issues must first be resolved before the underlying custody or property division matters can be addressed.
While Tour-Sarkissian Law Offices, LLP, first started as a San Francisco family law firm with extensive experience in cases involving international jurisdiction issues, the experience of its attorneys and their contacts took them beyond the borders of the state of California and the USA. Our network of resources extends around the world. Our lawyers will use our experience and abilities to protect your rights and achieve your goals.
