Validating foreign divorce in the US

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm unsure if this ended up in the right forum but I'm giving it a go.

Things did not go as planned and we've ended up getting divorced after 10 years together. We have gotten our Swedish divorce, as both of us live in the US we need to get it validated here. I know the Swedish divorce is recogniced here but I quite frankly have no idea how to go about it it?

Does anyone have insight on how to proceed to get the divorce validated in the US? I live in Texas if that makes a differense.

No such process.

Where is your lawyer located? Texas? Supposedly you need to submit a copy with a motion to register the foreign document to Texas. Thelawyer should be able to do this for you if in Texas or licensed to practice in Texas.

Unfortunately said lawyer is not in Texas. I'm still working on it. As far as I've gotten is that it's the county clerk that needs papers from me. Which papers they need is the next question. I've been directed by the county clerk to legal aid if I don't want to hire an attourney. I guess I'm spoiled by being able to find my way online and not have to get lawyers involved with anything.
