Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Jurisdiction under US law is generally set by where the couple maintains their residence as a married couple OR where either spouse has lived over the past 6 months.
Thus, it is possible that jurisdiction could be available in more than one place....and in more than one country. But, if they don't have a marital residence in the US if they haven't lived in the US for the past 6 months, then it is not likely that a US court would have jurisdiction.
