Customer Question

I got married in NYC 11 years ago and after my wife and i got estranged (but kept being civil with one another ) she moved back to Serbia (we are both nationals of Serbia), she filed for divorce in Serbia, and after i gave my written agreement, we were granted a divorce in Serbia. I have court decision in writing and translated by serbian court appointed translator. Is that paper valid in US?

Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
Yes. Generally, divorces that were legally completed / granted in another country would be valid and legally sufficient in the US.

I wish you the best of luck!
