My question involves a marriage in the state of: GERMANY
I got divorced in Germany and would need to register my divorce in the US.
we lived in TX and CA and my Ex saved into a 401K in both states, TX and in CA. He now lives back in TX.
Do I need to register a foreign divorce in Texas or in CA, or both?
Can the QDRO process handle the savings from/during living in both states or will it be split for savings accured in each state, each State separately?
to register my foreign divorce, I understand so far, I will need the German divorce paper, a translation by a certified translator, and an Apostille.
Is there any form to do the registration in TX and / or in CA?
Next step would be to file a case for the QDRO of 401K and pension plans?
