Domestication Of Existing Orders Addresses Relocation After Divorce
After a divorce has been finalized, it is not uncommon for at least one of the spouses to relocate to another state. The orders that were established during the divorce proceeding remain under the jurisdiction of the state where it was filed. When one or both of the spouses have moved away, it can make enforcing the order much more difficult.
If you have been divorced and need to take action on an order that was established in another state, it is possible to have the order moved to the state where you live, provided that certain criteria are met. The process for getting an out-of-state order enforced in Georgia can be relatively straightforward with the guidance of an experienced family law attorney.
