I have a client who has lived in Saudi Arabia with her

Customer Question

I have a client who has lived in Saudi Arabia with her husband for 16 years. He filed for and was granted a Sharia divorce but filed a U.S. divorce for property division in Texas. Texas was their last marital residence, but they left 16 years ago. They own no property in Texas. They do own property in California and in Florida and Hawaii. WHERE does jurisdiction lie?
