My (non-US citizen husband) and I married both in Taiwan and in USA? We divorced amicably in Taiwan. I’d like to register the divorce the US . There are no settlement issues. We have two adult children and one child still under the age of 18. I have sole custody.
We executed the Taiwan divorce agreement in both English and Chinese. I’d also like to reclaim my maiden name.
ATTORNEY ANSWER BY MARGARET L. CROSS-BELIVEAU:
There is a procedure for registering foreign judgments. You will need an exemplified copy of the judgments. You likely will need to consult with an experienced attorney on this. Now that you are divorced it would be a good idea to meet with an estate planning attorney to execute a new will, health care proxy and power of attorney.
