Sometimes you want a New York court to adjudicate your divorce or family law case, sometimes you do not. Laws very state to state as well as internationally. If you are served with New York State Supreme or Family Court papers the first thing you need to do is decide if New York has jurisdiction over your case and if there are other options. The same applies if you or your spouse lives outside of New York State. We have successfully represented clients on both sides of this argument and can help with the decision making process.
