Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
If you are wanting to divide up Texas proeprty here you would have to file for divorce in Texas.Texas would likely recognize a divorce but not any property division.To do that you really need to file here in Texas if you want to be awarded property.As long as you aren't wanting to divide the Texas property and assets the actual divorce maybe recognized here in Texas.But Texas would have to divide Texas assets.Divorce would be ok but assets have to be divided and awarded here.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.
If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
Get the Divorce abroad, in your home country, and then file a copy with a motion to register the foreign divorce in Texas. However, once you get the Divorce -- as long as it complies with the laws of your home country and it has been properly served -- it should be valid.
Before you leave this country, take a copy of the sections of the Texas statutes dealing with the issues of Divorce itself -- and of Service of Process (especially foreign service) under the Civil Rules -- with you. Show them to your Attorney there.
