Will I Lose My Home In Queens If My Spouse Files For Divorce In Another State?

In some ways, being served with divorce papers from another state is a blessing.

Because you are not a citizen of the jurisdiction in question, the other state’s court has limited options when it comes to enforcing action against you, so in most cases, divorces that happen between spouses in different states end up only dissolving the marriage itself, not dividing property or forcing one spouse out of the marital residence.

If the divorce was properly filed in the other state, you’ll want to retain a divorce lawyer in that area.

If you have concerns about the effects of an out-of-state divorce on you here in Queens, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you understand the issues in play and what the likely outcomes are.
