Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) who are going through a divorce may face additional challenges due to the fact that they are living in a different country than their spouse. It is important for NRIs to seek legal advice from a lawyer who is familiar with the laws of both the country they are living in and the country where their spouse is residing.
NRIs may also need to consider the implications of international laws and treaties, such as the Hague Convention on the Recognition of Divorces and Legal Separations, which governs the recognition of divorces and legal separations between countries.
It’s also important for NRI’s to be aware of divorce laws in their home country and ensure that their divorce is legally recognized by both the country they are living in and their home country.
It’s advisable for NRI’s to seek legal advise in both countries and also to be aware of all the legal formalities, procedures and deadlines in the countries of their residence and origin.
It is important to work with a lawyer who has experience in handling international divorce cases and who can guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected.
