Domicile and Habitual Residence
These are legal concepts which are very important in international family law and can effect legal issues concerning a child.
What jurisdictional options do I have for an international divorce case?
You could actually be domiciled in one country but habitually resident in another. Equally the same could apply to your partner.
Therefore, you may have the option to divorce in different jurisdictions.
It is important that you seek specialist legal advice so that you can compare and contrast financial outcomes and choose the jurisdiction which best suits your case.
