Modern Divorce: It matters where you file your divorce
Let's say you split up from your spouse and move to another state. When it comes time to divorce, do you know where to file? It can make a huge difference in the outcome, says Arizona family law attorney Billie Tarascio of Modern Law, and Texas family law attorney Brian Walters of Walters Gilbreath PLLC.
In this episode, you'll learn the sort of differences that can change the way the court will split up assets and whether you'll be eligible to receive spousal support (alimony). For instance, Texas says NO to spousal support, but may split up property differently than a community property state like Arizona, or California. It's also possible to take child custody issues to court in one state, while dealing with divorce and property issues in another.
How do you know which is best for you? Listen in for an illuminating conversation, and something that may change how and where you choose to divorce.
