Splitting up with a spouse living overseas

When it comes to divorce, there are different circumstances surrounding every couple’s situation. Some couples work together and amicably split up through mediation, others become involved in an extremely contentious and bitter divorce that drags out in the courtroom. For some people, divorce can be especially tricky. For example, someone may have a marital partner who is living in another country, and this may give rise to all sorts of questions. If your spouse is living overseas, it is pivotal to approach divorce carefully.

There are multiple reasons why people find themselves in this position. For example, someone may have moved to the U.S. from another country and they may decide to return to their homeland when a relationship breaks down. Or, someone may move to another country as a result of a job opportunity, and this may even be the reason for a couple’s divorce.

For someone whose spouse is living in another country, there may be many questions, such as how custody will be awarded, whether or not child support will be paid (and how much child support the non-custodial parent will owe) and so on. It is important to carefully approach these matters and make sure that your child’s best interests are kept in mind (if you are a parent).

If you are currently married to someone who is living abroad, it is pivotal to approach the end of your marriage carefully. Try to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of divorce and various legal issues relevant to your situation.
